Council's Blue Mountains Planetary Health Initiative is leading the #AYearInADay campaign!

From 1 January 2022, the Blue Mountains Planetary Health Initiative is ramping up its efforts to help grow local action for planetary health.

Each day we're posting about a new action we take to restore planetary health - socially, environmentally or economically and we're turning to you, our diverse and inspiring communities, to join us!

IF 364 OF YOU JOIN US EACH DAY TO SHARE A NEW ACTION you're taking, WE CAN ACHIEVE THE ACTION OF A WHOLE YEAR IN ONE DAY!

Your action could be as small as planting a seed, starting to compost, picking up rubbish in bushland, or looking after your own wellbeing by trying a new way to exercise, or choosing to not react negatively to someone on social media!

Each of these actions will help us, collectively, restore planetary health. 

In 2021, Council joined the Global Planetary Health Alliance that is publishing research on how the deteriorating health of the natural systems is affecting human health. As a result, Council is looking to restore planetary health by thinking globally and acting locally.

The new Blue Mountains Planetary Health Initiative is also building on Council’s long-term commitment to restore social, environmental and economic health across the City and, in turn, generate new jobs for the future.

If you have been inspired to act to restore planetary health, make sure you let us know!
