A workshop co-hosted by the Leverhulme International Research Network on Eco-city Frameworks

The One Planet Living framework is a planning, design and assessment tool for urban sustainability initiatives. It was developed by BioRegional, a UK-based and internationally active social enterprise, jointly with WWF; at its centre are ten principles informed by ecological footprint criteria and related socio-economic sustainability dimensions. To date, over twenty One Planet Living initiatives have been launched internationally; these variously relate to business organisations, new urban developments, and cities and city-regions. One Planet Living is one of a growing number of so-called ‘eco-city frameworks’ aimed at providing practical guidance and assessment tools for urban sustainability innovations within particular local and sectoral contexts.

The workshop brings together stakeholders from across three different UK sites that have implemented the One Planet Living framework. The aim of the round table is to learn from independent experience and to identify transferable elements which can be used in other contexts. The discussion will be informed by the analysis carried out by the University of Westminster, part of the Leverhulme International network.

The workshop will be part of the Eco Technology Show 2014.
