One Planet Living

We can create a better way to live.

What if everyone, everywhere lived happy, healthy lives within the limits of our one planet, leaving space for wildlife and wilderness? We call this One Planet Living.

We believe it’s still possible to prevent runaway, catastrophic climate change, and to regenerate our fragile ecosystems. But doing so requires us to work together to create the conditions that make it easier for people to live comfortably within the Earth’s means.

The District of Saanich is participating with four other One Planet Cities in this project — Oxfordshire County Council (UK), Durban (South Africa), Elsinore (Demark), and Tarusa (Russia). 

Our church would be the first faith group to join as a member of a One Planet Cities project. Participants in Saanich are: Camosun College; Claremont, Reynolds and Mount Douglas Secondary Schools; Up-town Mall; Gardenworks; VanCity Credit Union; Bumblebee Electric; Beespot Neighbourhoods; Haliburton Farm; Artemis Place Society; and Creatively United for the Planet.
