The theme of Oxford Green Week 2019 was One Planet Living, in recognition of the One Planet Oxfordshire project.
One Planet Living – created by Bioregional and developed together with WWF – is a vision of a world where people enjoy happy, healthy lives within the natural limits of the planet, leaving space for wildlife and wilderness.
Right now, if the rest of world lived as the average UK citizen does, we would need over three planets to support our way of life. We don’t have three planets – we only have one.
Bioregional created the One Planet Living framework to help everyone understand how we can bring our footprint down to within the limits of what our one planet can sustain, without sacrificing our happiness or wellbeing. The One Planet Living framework is relevant for everyone – individuals, community groups, local businesses, international corporations and governments. Find out more about how you can get involved here.
In 2018, the One Planet Oxfordshire project was launched, bringing together stakeholders from across the county to create an Action Plan based on the One Planet Living principles. If you would like to get involved in this project, please contact Lewis Knight or Hannah Scott.
