About Fundacja Transformacja…

When I observe the world around me, very often I notice how many things does not work as it might, or as it should work. It is not just about material things – gadgets of civilization, but also a social system in which we live, the relationships between people, between us and the environment. Many of these things need to change. To paraphrase the words of R. Buckminster Fuller: what we need is a DESIGN REVOLUTION. That’s what the TRANSITION Foundation’s work is all about. We live in a world of unlimited access to information, all you need to do is to connect the available tools and human creative potential with the solutions that have been tested by Nature for 4.6 billion years and prepare the ground for the coming revolution!” 

Łukasz Nowacki, Founder of TRANSITON Foundation


Experiential learning has the highest quality of retention among students; therefore, we are placing special emphasis on developing practical skills and create an environment of a “mock eco-village”  during the course where all participants share various responsibilities for the design and application of the living infrastructure of the course itself.

The beginning of the course is rich in practical exercises that provide students with a “glimpse” in actual eco-village life as they design their own social and physical infrastructure (tipi dwellings, classrooms, outdoor kitchens, showers and toilets) of the site before the formal lecture sessions begin. This unique variation of the 72-hour PDC format will allow participants an opportunity to begin working immediately with each other and familiarize themselves with the landscape as well as make  a plan as to what they are seeking to learn the most during the course.

The theoretical aspects of permaculture will finally be introduced on the third day, once participants some practical experiences to reflect upon. To visualize the theoretical elements, the course will feature slide shows, lectures, films, group work, guided tours, demonstrations, practical work and self-assessment. Each theoretical session is usually preceded by a hands-on activity, working with nature. The first week, hands-on exercises will revolve around methods of observation, site analysis, soil building and human health. During the second week, practical exercises will be design-based – applying the permaculture design tools to an actual piece of land, organization or event.

During this course, you will…

  • Live in harmony with nature
  • Gain practical experience using the techniques and processes of permaculture design
  • Apply design tools and methods of gardening to an existing landscape
  • Improve and practice collaboration skills, group work
  • Make connections, gather ideas and exchange experiences with people who have a strong interest or have already practiced permaculture design

  • Gain sufficient knowledge for how to integrate permaculture design in your own ecological or social projects.
  • Have access to a wider network and further resources for both personal and professional development.
