Communicating how all of the different aspects of sustainability fit together can be hard. Current ways of thinking have us focussing on individual issues that inevitably create more issues elsewhere. This is because the solutions we come up with are not joined up. We are struggling to see the bigger picture.
Andrew Durling, Executive Director of the Eastbourne ECO Action Network CIC, is using the OnePlanet platform to solve this problem. The Community Interest Company is made up of a growing number of people. It reaches over 974 businesses, charities and social organisations locally. All are united by the same goal – to turn Eastbourne carbon neutral by 2030 and to make it one of the best places to live in the UK.
Andrew has created a OnePlanet Action Plan for Eastbourne to create a sustainability story for the local community. The plan has been publicly published so that everyone can see the town’s sustainability efforts and how they can get involved. View their OnePlanet Plan here! An excellent blog has been written by Andrew that goes into more detail about his experience using the platform, so make sure to read it here.
At OnePlanet we believe that our technology is the answer to solving these complex problems. The building blocks of the platform help you to focus on the sustainability Outcomes that your whole organisation or community want to work towards. The Mindmap functionality and built-in frameworks, such as One Planet Living®, make communicating sustainability easy and engaging.
‘The OnePlanet platform is helping to start the conversation; it gives us the opportunities to create a strategic picture, see the big picture and monitor it.’Andrew Durling, Executive Director of Eastbourne ECO Action Network CIC
