Permaculture: A Quiet Revolution

27 min | Permaculture | 2008 (BR) | English & Portuguese

As corporate media fails to provide accurate news of the world’s dire environmental predicament, the Earth sends a clear message in the form of record-breaking natural disasters, famine and epidemics. People are mobilizing for what lies ahead.

In May 2007, the 8th International Permaculture Convergence (IPC8) was held in Brazil, bringing together visionary activists from 43 countries in the common goal of preparing for, and mitigating, our looming global crisis. Their strategy: Self-reliance and sustainability through permaculture.

This timely documentary offers practical steps on how to ‘permaculturize’ our lives. It invites viewers into a permaculture community that spans the globe. Most importantly, it gives the critical inspiration needed to turn our backs on that which is failing us, and to create a sustainable future of our own making.

URBAN PERMACULTURE TRANSFORMATION

KLICK FÜR DEUTSCHE FASSUNG & LINK ZUM BIRNHORNWEG BLOG

In time for beginning of spring from April 2016, after having spend much of the winter designing my brother’s urban property in Berlin, I will start to build what I have designed on paper and engage into my second larger transformative experiment with permaculture. (THE FIRST EXPERIMENT)

Permaculture Design

The Design Process

Permaculture is a design science that aims to redesign our way of life through our understanding of the ecosystems.

The world is changing fast and those changes are not always to our benefit. The excessive wealth and conveniences of a few are seriously damaging the lives of many today and risking to destroy the future for all.

There are many dark scenarios for the future and the reality gives us a good idea of how Bad that can look like. The sooner we accept that, we can become the architects and designers of this change and create the world we Do want.

It is time to wake up to the fact that we are the ones who have to do it. There is NO looking or hiding away from it! The crisis has long arrived at our door steps. It is more important than ever to look forward and take our fortunes back in our own hands! Why don’t we turn our fears into our greatest strength? Permaculture is here to help us design this world that we want – Now!

This is not about landscape gardening, this is political!
