This principle is about creating safe, equitable places to live and work which support local prosperity and international fair trade.

For example: diversity and equality, local economy, reducing wealth inequality, diverse employment, global equity, anything else we think is important.

One Planet Goals for equity and local economy:
  • A diverse community where there is opportunity for all, across abilities, gender, race, age and sexual orientation
  • A vibrant and resilient economy where a significant proportion of money is spent locally
  • International trade that is conducted fairly and without exploitation
