The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply affected societies worldwide, demanding communities to rapidly respond to the health and socioeconomic impacts of the disease. Higher education institutions are uniquely placed to lead a coordinated scientific and educational movement to shape a future that supports recovery from the pandemic and that can lead to improved opportunities in research, education and socio-environmental outcomes. In this commentary, Planetary Health Alliance Campus Ambassadors, a collective of individuals from diverse academic backgrounds representing universities across the world, call upon universities to commit to 5 actions to protect human and planetary health, now and in the future.
