This is our collection of One Earth Patterns. By this, we mean that these are summary pages of the planning work that was done by various groups in 2008-2009.

The concept of One Earth Patterns is derived from the use of the concept of pattern languages by architect Christopher Alexander. Pattern languages refer to a structured method of describing good design practices within a field of interest. We add the idea of 'One Earth' to the idea of patterns, referring to the concept that we are trying to promote a lifestyle that greatly reduces our impact on the earth. So, in the following patterns, we are promoting good design that is attuned to our relationship with the earth, minimizing our impact.
