Based on our practical experience of working on projects large and small, we recommend the following process for implementing One Planet Living – whether you are a real estate developer, a business, a city council, community group or school:
Creating a One Planet 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.
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.
Once you’ve created your One Planet Living Action Plan, if we consider it sufficiently ambitious we will endorse it.
By endorsing and 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.
