World Health Day
As an educator you play a crucial role in teaching people of all ages about their health and the health of our planet. You can use this toolkit to inspire your students to lead healthier lives which also benefit the health of the planet.
April 7 of each year marks the celebration of World Health Day. From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the celebration has aimed to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization.
Over the past 50 years this has brought to light important health issues such as mental health, maternal and child care, and climate change. The celebration is marked by activities which extend beyond the day itself and serves as an opportunity to focus worldwide attention on these important aspects of global health.
WWF have produced a series of assets in this pack to help you spread the message about how a healthy planet is linked to a healthy you. This content is designed to take our audiences on a journey of awareness to action around three key themes; food, air and water.
