Project Type

Urban, Rural, School Projects, Educational

Project Summary

The creation of the Interdisciplinary Center of Studies, Research and Extension Agroecology of the UFPR have goals of aggregate and disseminate techniques, practices and compatibles proposes with the agroecology principles, through a participatory approach between teachers / researchers, undergraduates and graduate students, field workers and farmers seeking recovery and exchange of experiences, knowledge and techniques. In addition, efforts to integration with institutions and organizations involved with the agroecology thematic on Plateau regions and the First Coast of Parana.

Project Description

- Creation of a network of dialogues between teachers / researchers, graduate students and graduate, technical, extension and farmers to study, discuss, debate, reflect, practice and disseminate agroecology.

- Promote reflections of Agroecology inside education institution within the applicant in order to disseminate the principles and practices among students new arrivals,and strengthen the area within the academic community;

- Insert the Study Group on Agroecology UFPR (GEAE and GESAF) at the Center, expanding the experimental actions and environmental education of these groups, serving to training of peer educators;

- Creation of a network of dialogues among institutions and private organizations, public, governmental, nongovernmental, and training involved with the theme agroecological of the regions of First Plateau of Paraná coast, seeking to give visibility to the various
experiences and promote the integration to strengthen regional initiatives;

- Search the approach and interaction with the associations and informal groups of small
agroecological producers, local residents, fishing colonies, community leaders, among other representations which will be identified in the regions of the First Coast and the Plateau Paraná, seeking to exchange knowledge and experiences, to a hinge joint of
actions proposed in this project;

- Centralize and systematic initiatives and projects underway in the regions of the First Plateau and the coastal region of Parana with a focus on Agroecology, through the creation of a database
regional data;

- Develop reference material in book form, containing theoretical and experiences studied and developed by the Center.

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.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

Permaculture Matchmaker

One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.



People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.


PDC Verified

People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.



People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.


PDC Teacher

People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.


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.
