One Health Education Resources - One Health Commission

One Health Education Resources

One Health is an integrated concept of health and well-being that combines knowledge and input from many different stakeholders to attain optimal health for people, domestic animals, wildlife, plants, and our environment.

 

One Health can be meaningful for everyone. 

 

It is about developing a relationship with our world that leads to a more sustainable, empathetic and healthy existence for all living creatures and the planet itself.

 

One Health can provide the conceptual basis for a curriculum that can teach young people how to look beyond immediate results and to ask complex questions while seeking a deeper understanding of integrated problem solving that preserves the health of an entire system.   It can be applied to and incorporated into nearly any discipline from STEM to the humanities and can be used to bridge disciplines when working through complex issues. 

Teachers (K-12 and beyond) will find that incorporation of the One Health concept into curricula can deepen student learning through critical thinking and cross curricular real world application. It can help them tie what they are learning in all curricula areas together. And, if you are in the U.S. it supports meeting the U.S.  Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in individual content areas.

Follow the links below to find materials for your classroom. More materials will be added as they are developed or become available over time. Most of these lessons (except those from One Health Lessons) are available only in English so far.  Let us know if you would like to help us adapt them to your native language.
