Beacon for Sustainable Living

  • Published on December 31, 2020
The Beacon for Sustainable Living is an initiative supporting those leading the way on sustainable everyday living. OneEarth, Hot or Cool and a team of communications and international experts identify creative strategies and overlooked approaches to living well for all within our ecological footprints. ​We focus on solution areas with great promise in supporting the large-scale changes necessary to achieve sustainable living: rethinking reduce; life transitions; cities; and imagining futures.
Overall aim: Raise both the ambition and impact of those who are ‘changing demand’ and mainstreaming low carbon living. Objectives: 1. To build acceptance of the ambitious nature of solutions needed to transform to 1.5 Degree Lifestyles / one-planet living and contribute to implementing these solutions. 2. To catalyze and create vivid imaginations of sustainable living futures; 3. To equip, support and connect those ready to catalyze transformative action toward sustainable ways of living that align with 1.5 Degree Lifestyles / one-planet living. Indicators: • # of people able to achieve wellbeing and live sustainable lives justly within our ecological footprints. • increase in enabling conditions (policies, market solutions, infrastructure) that support sustainable living. • Uptake of sustainable living solutions in articles, blogs, presentations, pitches, and briefings, and reflected in projects, partner activities, and funding. • Resources and partners committed to bold action. • Improved capacity and skills among actors focused on advancing sustainable living. • # of actors identifying as being part of an engaged and committed community among those active in catalyzing 1.5 Degree Lifestyles / one-planet living. • Improved strategic connections and coordination among sustainable living actors.
