Design a new world... With permaculture

DESIGNED TOGETHER WITH To be decided

With climate change, the future of humanity is at risk. It’s fundamental to understand the contribution of ecologically based movements for a more responsible, sustainable and, above all, regenerative living. How do we make it accessible and appealing to the masses?

Background

Permaculture is the design methodology for regenerative human lifestyle systems. Human Habitats, that work with Nature, rather than against Nature. It works as an anchor linking the citizen to essential principles, techniques and methods. However, it faces skepticism, various stereotypes and prejudices. Namely, that there is lacking evidence that permaculture is a viable option for restructuring of conventional agriculture and being accused of proposing a utopian (and therefore) impossible world.

Challenge

The world is undergoing constant change. But never in such a fast and global way as today. You can do your part and make a difference. Imagine a world where you can be the solution.
There are those who have stepped up to the challenge. This is the case of permaculture, which seeks food sovereignty, land stewardship, socio-economical wellness and ecological regeneration in a responsible way and by defending the environmental sustainability leading to a new reality. There are several good examples like Project Liberta-te in Portugal.
How can we strengthen the conditions for creating a resilient world by making permaculture mainstream? What would it be like?
