Course content

The chief purpose of a course is to map out a management plan for a ‘one planet’ project and understand the other requirements.

Topics include: land assessment, agroecology, renewable energy, zero carbon building and transport, water supply, sewage treatment, land management, measurement and verification, and planning applications.

Projects may vary in size from a single household to a neighbourhood, to a town or city. Businesses may also work towards ‘one planet’ status.

The goal of the work is to measure and reduce the project’s total ecological footprint. The plan shows how to achieve this in a sustainable fashion.

This exciting course will cover what is involved in shift to a ‘One Planet’ status.

A ‘One Planet’ Living is a way of living without harming the planet – and actually repairing it.

You will turn your vision into reality by making a draft of your own management plan and by the end of the course have a thorough overview of what is involved.

A key course book will be David Thorpe’s The One Planet Life: A Blueprint for Low Impact Development.
