Solutions for the climate and nature emergencies

We help organisations of all sizes and individuals to reduce their ecological footprint with our ever-growing information centre of proven solutions, training and capacity building.

Guided by science and data, we integrate our work with Well-being and Sustainable Development Goals. We aim to help the world become healthier and more equalwithin the limits of what the planet can provide. These are limits that the world presently exceeds.

We offer:

  1. A One Planet Standard that supports organisations to, transition to a level of resource use and nature upgrading that protects standards of living and the environment at the same time.
  2. Training and information for groups and individuals who want to live the ‘one planet’ life as defined under the trailblazing Welsh ‘One Planet’ Development planning system.

This response to the Climate and Nature Emergencies can be adopted by anyone or any body. Right now the world is definitely not living sustainably and heading for disaster.

On this website you will find details of publications, services, courses, news, to assist this process, and of what The One Planet Centre can offer.


Our work builds on two manuals written by founder-director David Thorpe:

  • The One Planet Life – a manual for low impact living by individuals, families and communities.
  • One Planet Cities – a compendium of solutions for towns and cities, and a suggested roadmap for transitioning to ‘one planet’ status.
