Facilitate Change! #12: Social Permaculture

May 29 @ 14:00 - 18:00


Permaculture and Social Change

Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable and resilient communities and environments. It offers practical tools for creating productive and efficient landscapes as well as organisations and social structures. Social permaculture is about connection – between people, economies, and governing structures – and creating the conditions for humans to flourish on a societal level and to develop beneficial relationships with the ecosystems which sustain us. Combining theory with creative exercises, this workshop will explore the ethics and principles of permaculture and how to apply them to urban, social and group contexts in order to organise, communicate and cooperate more effectively. This workshop will be facilitated by Alfred Decker.

Alfred Decker is an award-winning permaculture designer and one of Europe’s leading permaculture educators. Since his first PDC in 1998 in California, Alfred has been involved with social movements and projects throughout Europe and the Americas. He is the founder of the 12 Principles Permaculture Design consultancy, Permacultura Barcelona and the Forest Gardens project at Can Masdeu; is a co-founder of the Spanish Permaculture Academy (Academia de Permacultura Íbera); and was a member of the European Permaculture Teachers Partnership and the Permaculture Council of Europe. Alfred holds a post graduate diploma in sustainable architecture and renewable energy (Centre for Alternative Technology).

For those interested in going deeper into permaculture, Alfred will be co-facilitating a Permaculture Design Course along with teachers from the Permakultur Akademie in Berlin at Silent Green from June 1-15.
