The Trottier Institute for Sustainability in Engineering and Design (TISED) and McGill Global Health Programs are launching a collaborative seed grant pilot initiative to address challenges to planetary health. We'll fund health-related solutions at the nexus between disease, rapid environmental degradation and climate change caused by unsustainable industrialization, urban growth and resource consumption practices. This initiative will grant funding at least two interdisciplinary projects with researchers leading from both the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Engineering, with the larger goal of building a community of interdisciplinary researchers at McGill working in global environmental health. These collaborations will have the potential to transform lives across the globe, especially in underserved regions where poverty and poor healthcare dominate. Let’s contribute to planetary health with bold, new, high-risk ideas.
