One Health in Practice - Solutions for Healthy People in UNESCO Biosphere Reserves

April 3 - June 9 

We don't have one planet for humans and another for other species. If we wish to avoid pandemics from zoonoses, such as COVID-19 and other types of influenza, we must address direct and indirect drivers such as human ecological disruption and unsustainable consumption. Drawing upon lessons and reflecting on challenges from UNESCO Biosphere reserves, Professor Serge Morand of CNRS and CIRAD, presents the latest knowledge and management approaches developed under the One Health approach in this 10-week MOOC. 

The MOOC aims to:

  • present the scientific concepts linking healthy ecosystems to healthy human communities;
  • provide tools and frameworks to enable people to visualize solutions that restore ecosystems and make them more resilient;
  • share good practices and innovative solutions from biosphere reserves designated by UNESCO;
  • provide communities, policy-makers, and stakeholders with the knowledge and methodologies required to create better forms of governance that protect territories against emerging risks.

Available in English, French, and Spanish, One Health in Practice is a free, instructor-paced course from UNESCO and the SDG Academy, brought by the Earth Network and the Government of Italy.
