Paper long abstract:

Built around the A. Scarpa Museum of Ethnomedicine, the UNESCO Chair "Anthropology of Health - Biosphere and Systems of Healing" develops interdisciplinary research around the sites, the shapes and ways of healing, where different ideas of health, environments and medicines meet. This integrated system allows a beneficial exchange between western science and traditional practices. With a collection of over 1500 objects, the Museum represents today the world's most complete ethnomedical heritage and stands as scientific basis on the Ethnomedical field research. A multi continental World Heritage Site related set of projects identifys how forest based cultures, sacred sites, medicinal indigenous heritage and economies offer viable Sustainable Development Goal based examples remodeling the future of planetary health.
