Permaculture stands for a way of living and building a ‘permanent culture’. The starting point is the realization that everything is connected to everything and we as humans are part of the cyclical processes of nature. This is strongly reflected in the three ethical principles which are key to permaculture: earthcare, peoplecare, and fair share.
Permaculture is also a design method. For a long time it has mainly been applied to gardens. Food forests, edible forests, are a well-known example of such a permaculture system. Currently people permaculture is spreading into the world. People permaculture is permaculture applied to social and global systems, with succeses in the fields of personal development, health, balanced relationships and teams, project development, socio-cultural initiatives, community building and the creation of a culture of abundance.
Permaculture works in a way that is systemic, holistic, creative and solution-directed. It includes past and future generations in our story of today and offers tools to face the challenges of our times.
Thinking like an ecosystem
How does an ecosystem work and what can we learn from it? This day introduces you to several of the basic principles and patterns of nature. Together we explore how to apply them in our personal, professional and social life, in harmony with ourselves, each other and the planet.
