ECOLISE proposes to host a panel discussion and workshop on how we can maintain and build alliances to continue the work of 'designing the world we want' post-conference. ECOLISE, the European network of community-led initiatives on climate change and sustainability, brings together 34 member organisations from across Europe, with key representatives from all the main movements of community-led initiatives (Permaculture, Transition, Ecovillages, etc..).

During this double-header we will discuss the role of aesthetics and educational design for permaculture landscapes. Then we will head outside to practice designing a space with these considerations in mind.

In building the Permaculture International Research Network (PIRN) we are trying to provide a platform which fosters creativity, maximises intrinsic motivation and sharing, facilitates online and offline networking and builds a community based on trust. In this workshop I would like to focus on maximising intrinsic motivation.

How can we ensure that a “culture” of permaculture is developed and propagated as much as the practical design skills and the ‘nuts & bolts’ of implementation? How do we – and why should we – rewrite the stories of our present day society to ones that reflect the Earthcare, Peoplecare and Fairshare ethics?

Endowed with artistic flair? Musical talent? Gift of the gab? How can we use these skills to effectively communicate ideas of permaculture to the wider world?
