What is the One Planet City?

Brighton & Hove was accredited as the world’s first One Planet City in 2013. Selected and commissioned from an open call by FotoDocument, ten emerging and established photographers have created ten photo essays in response to each of the ten principles of One Planet Living, a sustainability framework created by Bioregional and adopted by the city of Brighton and Hove. The ten photo essays are currently being exhibited at key venues around the city until August 2015, including: Brighton Railway Station, Shoreham Port, Hove Promenade, The Open Market (London Road) and the American Express Community Football Stadium amongst others. This project has been conceived, commissioned and curated by FotoDocument in partnership with Photoworks and Bioregional and is supported by Arts Council England and Brighton & Hove City Council.
