Communities For A Sustainable Future

Project Type

Educational

Project Summary

I have started by teaching, and informing the local people of the steps they can begin to take. I have started teaching principles and ethics to ensure communities for a sustainable future.

Project Description

I have yet to develop a demonstration site. For now, I have been doing Introductory Permaculture presentations (for free) I am touring local libraries, coffee shops and doing what I can to get the people interested in sustainable practices. My educational presentations are simple and to the point, on easy first steps, to reshape our urban commuinites for a sustainable future. I go over methods of effective was to recycle waste and how to start composting, how to rebuild soil, and how to produce less waste. I also cover many integrated design ideas, for outdoor, and indoor gardens that can be low cost, and self-sufficient. I have yet to recieve interest for any major communial transitional action, but plan to do what ever is possible. though I leave to do aid work internationally, I have hopes to get the project regulating it self, so that I can continue when I return from furthering my education.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
