Short course content
The chief purpose of a short workshop is to map out a management plan for a ‘one planet’ project and understand the other requirements.
Topics include: land assessment, agroecology, renewable energy, food, land-based businesses, zero carbon building and transport, water supply, ecological sewage treatment, land management, monitoring, 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.
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.
