Human Sphere & Community Resilience Workshop
Tutor: Nándor Tánczos
When: Saturday, 8 October; 9am– 5pm
Where: Waikato Environment Centre, 242 Peachgrove Road, Hamilton
Our world is changing, although it is not always clear what exactly that will mean. Many of the assumptions we now take for granted will no longer apply in the future. Both long term trends, such as climate change and resource depletion, as well as short term natural and social disasters may impact us in unexpected ways. Building a capacity for resilience, both as individuals and in our communities, is the best way to prepare for an uncertain future.
Permaculture is based on an ecological approach that builds resilience through a number of the design principles. This module looks at what it means to apply a permaculture lense to the social realm, and how to design a more sustainable, resilient and regenerative human ecology.
Fee: $135 (Discount available for WEC members)
This session can be attended as a workshop or be credited towards our Permaculture Design Certificate (Module 9).
