This Plenary Session focuses on the multiple inter-connections and feedbacks that exist between various social and societal issues and furthering the One Health paradigm. We will look at social and societal issues both in terms of challenges (e.g., social inequality and disparities, patterns of oppression, lack of access to various resources including education) and opportunities (e.g., improved availability of knowledge about sustainability and One Health, social learning processes, trends toward better awareness of animal health and welfare issues). The Plenary will explore ways and means to use improved knowledge, insight and practice in the above areas to inform One Health governance at various levels with the goal to enhance its coherence, accountability and effectiveness. The Session will apply an inter-disciplinary and systems approach in exploring these aspects.
