Who We Are

We're ONEZERO and we are on a MISSION 


We have created OneZero as we are not going to wait any longer for someone else to solve the problems caused by our old and polluting housing.


Our diverse and creative team has decades of experience transforming homes into ecohomes and now we are excited to do it in a way that brings lots of people together on that journey. At a scale that no-one believes is possible, but is surely necessary.


We have skills and passions in community organising, regenerative culture, powerful storytelling, the nuts and bolts of policy making, and deep reverence for indigenous wisdom. We truly believe we can live in ways that are in harmony with the planet and each other. 


We are stubborn optimists that want to apply our experience to help lots of people benefit from this opportunity of transformation, linking communities around the world in this process, and helping success in one area of the world feed into success in another. 


Climate change can be daunting and depressing, but we are convinced that playing our part in solving it can be empowering and connecting - especially when we work together as communities to lead the way. Imagine the celebration in your town, estate, or neighbourhood, as we massively reduce local pollution, fix your bills and make your home healthy. Our team will work with your community to get to that celebration event and beyond. 


So this is an invitation to join our movement of people who are stepping up together. Let’s make this a decade of transformation.
