Keynote Topic: One Planet Living Principles
Speaker: Suzette Jackson, Director, Innate Ecology
One Planet Living is a model, based on ten principles, which provides a framework to make sustainability easy, affordable and attractive for everyone.
In 2013 the City of Greater Geelong, Environment Department adopted the One Planet Living principles in their Environment Management Strategy 2013-17 draft document. Councils Australia wide and internationally are utilising the One Planet principles to guide council strategy and city development. Geelong Sustainability Group has decided to align its activities to these principles also.
BioRegional runs the One Planet Living program that helps Communities, Councils and Companies address these key sustainability principles. Their objective is to show that eco-construction and developing green lifestyles can be easy, accessible and affordable, and provide a good quality of life.
Don't miss this session in which Suzette, who is an accredited One Planet Living trainer, will explain the ten principles, give a historical snapshot and inspire us with some international and more local case studies.
The most famous UK case study is BedZED (Beddington Zero Energy Development), which comprises 100 homes, community facilities and workspace for 100 people.
