Robin Clayfield – Fast Tracking Change with Social Permaculture

Transitioning to healthy societies locally, nationally and globally is made easier and quicker using Social Permaculture design strategies and processes. The power and empowerment of a positive, healthy group naturally inspires and propagates environmental and social change. The more connected a group, organisation or business is the healthier it is and the more
likely members are to focus on the purpose of the group, rather than solve disputes, conflicts and personality challenges. Also, the more likely they are to successfully engage people to eagerly participate.

Social Permaculture highlights the ‘Culture’ in Permaculture and brings our ‘People Care’ Ethic to the fore. It utilises our design principles and applies them to groups, organisations, learning environments and communities and asks, if these principles were applied, how would our groups, courses, conferences and networks be operating? ‘Connectivity’ is a great theme. ‘Social Permaculture’ assists the connectivity in Permaculture and is the magic that enlivens the network to be even more connected
and effective.
