Join us for a conversation about the One Planet Saanich initiative
Hear stories from around the world about businesses, schools and communities that are driving change using the One Planet Living framework.
 
The One Planet Living principles - from health and happiness and sustainable food to zero carbon energy - provide a common language to talk about sustainability and drive change.
?The District of Saanich and other Saanich stakeholders - including schools and businesses - are participating in the One Planet Cities Initiative along with three other cities from around the world.
 
Pooran Desai, Bioregional’s founder and initiator of the ground-breaking BedZED project in London (UK), will share lessons learned in applying the framework’s ten simple principles. You will hear about his experience leading action planning teams throughout the world, and about how we can apply these lessons in Saanich.
