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, with a focus on Cities and Regions, Communities and Destinations, Companies and Organisations, and Schools and Educational facilities.

Take action and register in the One Planet Program.

The Goals and Guidance set out the principles and goals, proposed metrics and targets to acheive the One Planet Living ten principles. For some principles, such as ‘zero carbon energy’ 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  leadership opportunities with quantitative and/or qualitative measures.

Our process

The One Planet Program requires a three year commitment to the development of a One Planet Analysis, leadership initiatives and targets in  One Planet Action Plan, and the ongoing implementation, monitoring and transparent reporting of outcomes to stakeholders and community.

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

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 achieve Recognition  status the One Planet Integrator submits the One Planet Analysis, One Planet Action Plan and supplementary documentation for  review.

The review is conducted by an Australian Assessor, Bioregional Australia Board and  Bioregional UK.

On successful completion the project or organisation is provided with recognition (for a three year period) as a One Planet Community, Company, Council, or School for their commitment to the implementation of the One Planet Action Plan.
