Project Description

Praça da Cidadania is today the main project of the Social Fund of São Paulo, and its main objective is to positively impact the life of the population in situation of social vulnerability through the training and support to the insertion in the job market. The square will be a place for socializing, study and leisure, where the training courses of the Social Fund will take place: Fashion, Beauty, Gastronomy, Informatics, Bioconstruction and Social Garden.

The local population will actively participate in the entire process, both in the development of the project and in the execution, management and maintenance of the space, based on the use of sustainable, ecological and participatory concepts and methods _____________________________________________________________ A Praça da Cidadania é hoje o principal projeto do Fundo Social de São Paulo, e tem como objetivo primordial impactar positivamente a vida da população em situação de vulnerabilidade social através da capacitação e apoio à inserção no mercado de trabalho.

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.
