Institute at the Golden Gate

Turning the Tide focused on connecting our planet’s health with our human health and brought together over 300 leaders from a variety of sectors to find ways to create action around some of the world's most pressing issues.

The most enduring solutions come from understanding the complex interrelationship between our survival as a species and the health of the global environment—an environment upon which all living things depend.

During the conference, we advanced this principle by engaging forward-thinking doctors as well as pioneering climatologists; bringing together diverse leaders from across the health-care sector; and forging productive linkages among medical professionals, environmental advocates, park officials, and experts on food and ecological systems. Here, within a national park, we aimed to demonstrate these convictions and are currently working to scale target initiatives around the country.
