Bioregional’s One Planet Cities project is bringing together four cities and city-regions across the world to create sustainability action plans – helping them move towards a greener, healthier future, where everyone enjoys a good quality of life
One Planet Oxfordshire is bringing together a wide range of local councils, organisations, businesses, schools and community groups from across the county to collaboratively create a ‘One Planet Action Plan’ for a better, more sustainable future.
The plan will be structured using Bioregional’s One Planet Living framework. These ten simple principles – from health and happiness and sustainable food to zero carbon energy – provide a common language to talk about sustainability and to drive positive change.
This is part of Bioregional’s One Planet Cities project funded by the KR Foundation.
We are going through a four-step process to create the plan:
The aim is for us to join together in partnership to put the plan into action and then monitor its progress over the coming years. The vision and One Planet Action Plan will be a resource and a reference for everyone to use – a picture of a future we are all working towards.
The actions will be down to each individual or organisation taking part, but our collaborative partnership will keep an overview of how everyone is getting on and look for opportunities to help these actions happen.
More than 90 people and organisations joined us at our One Planet Oxfordshire workshop in November 2018. Together we developed a vision for the county and a set of indicators and outcomes to achieve that vision. If you live or work in Oxfordshire, please do read these proposed outcomes and indicators and let us know your comments using the contact form below.
Bioregional Oxfordshire and Oxfordshire County Council are leading One Planet Oxfordshire, with support from Oxford City Council, Cherwell District Council, the CAG Network and OxLEP.
