Take action

Act now, get involved and transition to One Planet Living with the One Planet Program.


The One Planet Living international framework consists of ten cross-cutting principles that provide a simple way to plan, deliver and communicate a strong commitment and action to achieve a quality of life for all people. The One Planet Program is operated by Bioregional Australia for recognition as a One Planet Community, Company, Council or  School.

Take action and register in the One Planet Program.

The Goals and Guidance set out goals, metrics and targets with suggested timeframes of 2020, 2025, and 2030 across the ten One Planet Principles in order to achieve one planet living. For some principles, such as ‘zero carbon’ and ‘zero waste’, there are clear quantitative common international targets. For other principles, such as ‘culture and community’, targets are set according to regional context, and national leadership opportunities, with both quantitative and qualitative measures.

Our process

The One Planet Program requires a commitment to the One Planet Principles, Goals and Guidance, the development of a One Planet Analysis and One Planet Action Plan, and the ongoing implementation and reporting of outcomes to stakeholders and community.

Recognition can be achieved in year one of the Bioregional Australia program, with  reporting on actions implemented in year two and three. The international One Planet Living framework is used to drive system change and can be used alongside national and international industry  programs.

Contact Australia@bioregional.com for the One Planet Program outline, fees and application form.

One Planet Analysis

A One Planet Integrator leads you and your stakeholders through a visioning session and context analysis. This compares existing practices, processes and outcomes to the ten principles and Goals and Guidance for One Planet Living, identifying opportunities for system change in order to transition.

Co-creation of  a One Planet Action Plan

A One Planet Integrator leads you and your stakeholders through  a workshop/s to identify strategies and actions to achieve the ten One Planet Living principles, Goals and Guidance.  The result is the creation of a One Planet Action Plan that sets out how to achieve transformation and the stakeholders involved.

One Planet Recognition

To become recognised  by Bioregional Australia the One Planet Integrator submits the One Planet Analysis and One Planet Action Plan for  review. On successful completion the project or organisation is provided with recognition as a One Planet Community, Company, Council, or School for their commitment to the implementation of the One Planet Action Plan for a further two years, including  monitoring and reporting.

One Planet International Recognition

In order for a project or organisation to become internationally recognised the One Planet Action Plan will undergo a peer review by the International  Technical Director / Expert Panel. On completion the project or organization commits to monitoring and reporting for three years.
