Our Values

Stronger together
Facing the challenge of the climate and ecological crisis can feel overwhelming and as an individual we question ‘Can I really make any difference?’ When we face this challenge together we know we CAN make a real difference. We are stronger together!
Regenerative
As a human race we know we are living unsustainably. How can we sustain something that currently isn't sustainable? We can do better and work on being regenerative. This starts with looking after ourselves and each other. Burnout is common amongst volunteers so we need to pace ourselves by looking after our mental and physical wellbeing
Open
We’re reflective and open to change, responding to criticism with a growth mindset and always learning and willing to adapt.
We’re experimental, we don’t do things because they’ve always been done that way. We’re willing to challenge and be challenged in order to progress.
To work effectively and efficiently we can’t promise to consult everyone about every decision. But we’ll always be transparent about the decisions we make.
Fun!
Working hard to influence local behavior and policy change can be hard going. That’s why we always try to have fun in the process! When we enjoy each other's company then we look forward to working together.
We are focused on what works
We appreciate and value the limited time capacity we all have as volunteers at Planet Purbeck therefore we use our time effectively and efficiently by focusing on what works and will make a real difference.
