Remembering David Thorpe (1954-2024)


David Thorpe, who recently passed away, was a friend and patron of the One Planet Council and long-time supporter of One Planet Development in Wales. We will remember him for his energy and enthusiasm, boundless imagination and creativity in applying his diverse talents in service of a sustainable future. Members of our community encountered him through his writing and workshops, particularly during the researching and publication of his book “The One Planet Life“. David was generous with his time and support for potential OPD applicants and for practitioners, attending many meetings of the One Planet Council in its early days. Later, he founded the One Planet Centre as his focus extended beyond OPD to One Planet Cities and the One Planet Standard.

We raise a glass to David’s memory and send our condolences to his family.
