As we build up for another year of inspiring conversation at the Earthsharing stall at the Sustainable Living Festival (Feb 14 – 16), put this presentation in your calender:

PERMA-NOMICS
CAN THE 12 PRINCIPLES OF PERMACULTURE BE PARAPHRASED INTO A NEW ECONOMICS?

Friday Feb 14th, 5 – 6pm
Birrung Mar

Today’s ‘divide and conquer’ system needs transplanting into a flexible, integrative economy that’s low on waste and high on positive feedback loops.

For a permanent culture to flourish, the process of buying and carving up communities for the highest profit must be curbed. This will help slow the growth-at-all costs mantra. Valuing and using our resources sustainably can deliver the efficiency of conservative dreams whilst equity is encouraged.

Whilst economics is easily critiqued, what about the ‘sustainability’ of Perma-Culture. What implications does a successful permaculture community have for local economies?

Join Real Estate 4 Ransom producer Karl Fitzgerald for an entertaining look at how cities of the future can harness humanity’s energy to change for the better. Karl runs the POWer Plants community nursery with his partner Rayna and kids Tara, Jamari & Curtis from the side of their family home.

    As a follow up, about 50 people attended the talk. It went well. Unfortunately the live recording not so well!

    I have dedicated two Renegade Economists shows covering the topic. Visit this post on Earthsharing to listen.
