Our approach

Research &
Scale up -
Policy &

The way we work is designed to deliver impact in everything we do with our partners.

Our best creative strategies and projects involve working with our local partners to make things happen and show what can be practically achieved, just as we did with BedZED.

We want to make a real difference, inspire others to do the same and work with our partners to make innovative and lasting changes happen.

We do this through the practical implementation of projects, using and applying our unique One Planet Living framework. We scale up our impact by influencing policy and practice.

We apply creative thinking to challenges that need a fresh perspective or where an entirely new approach is required.

We are always seeking to improve, so we measure, research and evaluate and, if necessary, adapt or amend our approach.
