The study of plants can take on many forms. On the one hand we can take an 'observer' eye and study the plant as an 'other' out there in the life world. We can also engage with plants through a participatory approach, taking our cues from their dynamic unfolding in time and space - their becoming. Furthermore, the developing plant offers us a wealth of impressions and imaginations for contemplation and meditation.

Beyond down-to-earth practices, permaculture provides as well a brilliant framework for designing sustainable and resilient companies. Changes in economic thinking and economic acting are key factors for creating the world we want to live in. The course for the future is being set now.
