Transdisciplinary approaches for planetary health at NU

We at Nagasaki University aim to coexist with the earth through our research and activities related to the global environment and ecosystems, with an emphasis on sustainability.
We believe it is necessary to educate people to have a planetary-health mindset in the pursuit of inquiry to mobilize questions and move toward the answers.
We hope to create new knowledge sources from a multi-perspective approach, drawing from the existing wisdom in the fields and domains working on planetary health.
