Description/achievement of initiative
One Planet Living in various communities across the globe. One planet living is a practical implementation framework of holistic environmental and societal principles based on sustainable consumption and sustainable development.
Commitment 1. We commit to work with five countries and stakeholders to pilot the one planet living approaches at a national level to draw out lessons for the proposed Sustainable Development Goals and the post 2015 Sustainable Development framework. We have been discussing this idea with governments including, but of course governments have to wait to see the outcomes. We do not have the resources for this, but will fund raise for it.
Commitment 2. To work with the local community in Rio to enable an aspirational one planet lifestyle in poorer communities by 2015
Commitment 3 BioRegional and our partners commit to enable the One Planet Living approach and framework to be more widely used and available through communications, e-learning, and training 10,000 people by 2015. OPL has been put forward for the 10YFP on SCP.
