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.
