Greenprints is a program created by AELA that:

  • provides a practical, step-by-step approach to help people understand both the big picture and the small details of how to transform our societies, so we can care for the environment, build new economies and thrive within safe ecological and climate limits
  • can bring people together across communities and bioregions, to forge new futures, by joining up our existing and new efforts and initiatives;
  • is an Australian-designed approach, that aims to be accessible to anyone. It demystifies and connects the many varied concepts, models and methods that can be used to create ecocentric, sustainable and regenerative communities, organisations and societies (It helps you use Doughnut Economics, Global Ecological Footprint, Rights of Nature, SDGs and other approaches!)


The Greenprints Exchange is a community of people with expertise across an array of knowledge systems and areas of expertise, including: Indigenous law, philosophy and culture, across natural sciences, social sciences, design, law, planning, food systems, design, the arts and more. The Exchange is quite literally a way for people to meet, exchange ideas and share their expertise with the Greenprints team, and Greenprints communities.
