Earlier this year, the Australian federal election was touted as the “climate election,” where climate change surfaced as a key political focus. In parallel to election campaigning, the International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE) World Health Promotion Conference was held in Rotorua, New Zealand. The theme of the conference was Waiora: Promoting Planetary Health and Sustainable Development for All. We use this editorial as an opportunity to digest the outcomes of both the conference and the post‐election results with respect to planetary health and the subsequent implications for health promotion policy and practice. An Associate Editor (RP) ap‐ proached three leading climate and health experts (FA, AC and TH) and the Editor‐in‐Chief (JS) to discuss the political, policy, advocacy and research challenges of climate change, and what this means for health promotion policy and practice across the region.
