One Planet Living

One Planet Living is our vision of a world in which people enjoy happy, healthy lives within the natural limits of the planet, wherever they live in the world, leaving space for wildlife and wilderness.

Our One Planet Living framework, based on ten easy-to-grasp principles, enables those we work with to plan for, communicate and deliver sustainable development. The framework provides a clear, practical roadmap for those who are seeking a better way to live and do business.

Programs Bioregional coordinates using  the One Planet Living framework include One Planet Communities (neighborhoods), One Planet Councils (entire cities), and One Planet Companies (enterprise-scale sustainability).

Bill Mollison, ecologist and co-creator of permaculture, an agricultural system that works with, rather than against, nature, died recently aged 88.
BillMollisonIn 1978 Bill Mollison and student David Holmgren published Permaculture One, the precursor of Mollison’s more detailed Permaculture – A Designers’ Manual (1988).

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.
