Based on our practical experience of working on projects large and small, we recommend the following process for using One Planet Living.

If you are an individual, check out our tips for helping achieve One Planet Living.

Create a One Planet Living Action Plan

Creating a One Planet Living Action Plan that is grounded in an understanding of how people live their lives is the first major step in embedding One Planet Living into your organisation or project.

We encourage you to publish your plan on the digital platform we have created, oneplanet.com. This uses cutting-edge technology to help you organise information from a wide range of sources and create a comprehensive action plan that’s easy to manage, track and communicate.

Our recommended process for implementing One Planet Living is:

  • Agree that One Planet Living is the right approach for you: You will need a decision from the right people at the top of your organisation that you are committing creating a One Planet Action Plan and delivering it
  • Get buy in - involve all your key stakeholders in understanding One Planet Living, how you’ll be using it and what you want to achieve. We also recommend that the person leading the process attends One Planet Living training.
  • Create your One Planet Living Action Plan using our people-centred approach (which is embedded throughout all our useful resources below) and publish it on oneplanet.com
  • Implement your plan and embed it into your operations
  • Monitor progress – to make sure you are achieving your intended goals and outcomes
  • Report – publishing regular progress reports helps promote transparency and demonstrates your continued commitment.

How we can help

One Planet Living advisory services

Bioregional can advise or support you at any stage of your journey to help you ensure that you fully integrate One Planet Living into your community, organisation or development project. We can work with you to set outcomes and targets and to create progress reports, and we can train your teams too.

Working with your team throughout the whole project cycle achieves the best results – for example, for large-scale development projects like Villages Nature Paris in France and WGV in Australia we have been involved from early designs through to construction and operations. Please contact us using the form below to find out how we can help.

One Planet Living training

At Bioregional we describe people charged with implementing One Planet Living in a project or organisation as ‘One Planet Living Integrators.’ This is the person who has the job of integrating One Planet Living into strategies, plans and processes, as well as into organisational culture. Learn more about the One Planet Living training we offer.

You can also find trained One Planet Living integrators on oneplanet.com who can support you to create and embed a One Planet Action Plan within your organisation.

Be recognised for your leadership

Once you’ve created your One Planet Action Plan, if it is sufficiently ambitious we will recognise it for leadership and promote it widely. First, we will need to carry out a comprehensive review of your plan.

By showcasing those who are taking big strides towards achieving One Planet Living we aim to inspire others to follow their lead.

Be inspired by One Planet Living leaders around the world.
