Environmental physiotherapy is an emerging field in our profession that applies across physiotherapy research, practice and education. It builds on the recognition that human health and functioning depend on a supportive social and natural environment. Environmental physiotherapy is grounded in an in-depth exploration of the relationship between health, society, environment and physiotherapy in all of its facets. Fostering both environmental awareness and responsibility, the aim is to advance the physiotherapy profession to make significant contributions to planetary health and wellbeing in a manner that recognises the inseparable nature of today’s environmental, social and health challenges.
