Summary
"The 'One Planet' Life explains the challenges presented by the planning system to the movement for low impact development, and puts forward practical advice and success stories from those who have achieved sustainable living. With a foreword from Jane Davidson, the former Welsh Environment Minister, the book draws on the experiences of the One Planet Wales project. The core how-to chapters examine issues such as Water, Energy and Food, and exemplary case studies of small scale sustainable enterprises are presented along with lessons learned. The book will be key reading for built environment practitioners and policy makers who are keen to support low impact initiatives, and for students studying aspects of planning, geography, governance, sustainability and renewable energy. It will also be of interest to anyone seeking to find out how a sustainable lifestyle can be achieved"--
