Designing our Global Education Systems using Permaculture Principles

Imagine a world where children grow up respecting and learning from nature, growing food and tending animals, meeting and co-creating in a natural and easy way together, having fun, loving learning and feeling good about themselves all through their journey to adulthood and beyond.

Imagine adults meeting in circle, in community, in government and boardrooms, actively listening to each other, co-creating a positive world and making decisions together in a way that everyone contributes and feels empowered. Decision making, planning, designing and visioning happen easily and for the best good of the group or organisation.

Problems transform into useful and inspiring solutions and all decisions, plans and actions respect the earth and all peoples. This happens comfortably as if it has always been so.

Permaculture principles are inherent in our society and integrated in every aspect of life and living. The time for a creative, empowering and globally adopted education system, based on permaculture design principles and Dynamic Groups methodology is here, now.
