Hosted by Creative Collectives and New Earth Systems for life, David Holmgren gives a half-day workshop intended to help those at the front line of sustainability. A rare chance to get up-close and personal and gain an in-depth insight into the the issues David is most passionate about.
During his presentations he will uncover new perspectives to keep permaculture activists ahead of the game.
Building on thirty years of permaculture teaching, Transition activism and personal example David synthesises how to survive, thrive and contribute to a better world, wracked by unfolding climate chaos, peak energy, economic contraction and geopolitical stress. The Brown Tech Energy Descent scenario is the reference point and context for the workshop, but David also draws on more recent published and unpublished work, including an Energy Descent Action Planning consultancy for his own Hepburn Shire Council (Vic) as well as his influential Retrofitting the Suburbs presentations that have evolved over time to the current version Permaculture Surfing The Property Bubble Dumpers.
