What the one planet life would mean for you
- Do you want a safe and relatively affordable place to bring up children?
- Do you want to be healthier and happier?
- Do you want to live closer to nature?
- Do you want to help benefit the environment and do your bit to tackle climate change?
Whatever your reason, the one planet life beckons to you as a way of enriching your enjoyment of every day and finding fulfillment in simple actions.
The one planet life is about enhancement.
Based on our experience, the chances are that you can find pleasure in living in a home that emits no pollution – or even that you helped to build yourself; in generating your own energy or purchasing renewable energy; and in eating food you have grown yourself or that’s fresh and local.
It’s likely that you’ll make friends and feel that you belong in a community. Community cohesion and the reduction of inequalities are part of one planet living.
An improved diet gives you more chance of being healthier.
Having more nature around where people live and work helps well-being, biodiversity and resilience.
A basic principle of one planet living is to work with nature, not against it.
You can either practice this where you live now, or think about buying land and building a ‘one planet’ development.
