One Planet Living

One Planet Living® dreams of a brighter, better future for everyone, including you. It’s a framework that is being used by people just like you, across the world. The tool is based on 10 simple principles, or ideas to get you started.

This library of resources will help you produce an action plan relevant to you and give you ideas of who and where to connect with to help you get started on your journey.

ecobirmingham have teamed up with Bioregional and are using this tool with households, organisations and communities across Birmingham. It covers environmental, social and economic factors through the 10 principles. Not all of the resources will be relevant to your situation, but should help you get some ideas to get started.

You can use them to build your own Sustainability Action Plan, based on your own priorities, personal resources and needs. Your action plan will have steps you can take now, next month and next year – it’s about a plan of action that works for you.

Often sustainable solutions are beneficial to our health and wellbeing, as well as the environment, and can save you money too. Choose your route below and start creating your own action plan!




Backed by many years of hands-on experience, it’s a highly flexible framework that is helping people around the world to achieve their vision of a brighter, better future.  Watch Bioregional’s video below.
