Healing Communities Using Design Principles from Wild Nature
Humanity stands at the proverbial fork in the road where fateful and auspicious decisions are made. What human beings choose now, may well determine the survival or extinction of our own species and that of many others. During the UN Climate Conference COP26 in Glasgow — most of the world pledged to work together to cut carbon emissions. Despite this news, more is required of us individually and collectively to change the status quo.
Climate change, the pandemic, and our human-centric lifestyles, are exacerbating poverty, social inequities, world hunger, and ecosystem collapse. Climate refugees, losses in biodiversity and wildlife habitat all continue to mount. According to the U.N. Agency, World Food Programme, as of November 2021, 45 million people in 43 countries are on the verge of famine, up from 27 million two years ago. For many of us, regardless of where we live, access to clean air, water, food, soil, and shelter are not guaranteed. It is as sobering a time as it is one of great promise and potentiality.
Many around the globe are responding to the urgency of our times with permaculture design, a vehicle for healing communities and ensuring a collaborative, sustainable future.
Permaculture is an integrative design system for sustainable, resilient, and abundant living. It emulates ecological relationships from wild nature and aims to protect and preserve water supply, agricultural land, and the greater environment. The practice encompasses architecture, horticulture, energy, waste management, and urban planning.
In this episode, hear renowned permaculture and resilience designer Warren Brush contemplate with us, the world as it might yet become. Warren has worked for over 30 years in agro-ecological education and regenerative system design for communities, private and public organizations, households, farms, and conservation properties worldwide. Warren is Co-Founder of True Nature Design and Quail Springs Permaculture. He talked with EcoJustice Radio on his variety of international resilience design and food security projects.
