A few days ago I gave you all a sneak peek at the Worldwide Permaculture Network database we’re furiously working on. As I’ve expressed multiple times on this site and in discourses with permaculturists worldwide, it’s my firm belief that driving permaculture into mainstream thinking will only happen if the mainstream see the breadth and scope of permaculture work today, and its enormous potential if demanded by citizens and incentivised by governments. People need to see us as a movement; a force to be reckoned with and taken seriously. This is where such an online network as we’re building can become a valuable tool for real change. With it we can both showcase projects of every shape and size worldwide, and network and collaborate to put pressure where pressure is needed.
The following video clip expounds on these thoughts nicely.
I look forward to releasing this system for general consumption, and hope you will help us with feedback and involvement to make it everything it should be.Comments (9)
