Fremantle Town Hall
The interactions between Climate Chaos, Oil Shocks and Economic Contraction is confused in the minds of the public and policy makers alike. The rapidly changing context in which sustainability activists, and entrepreneurs work is reshaping the context for planning and action.
This workshop is intended to help those at the front line of sustainability use the over-the-horizon thinking of leading Australian sustainability teacher, David Holmgren. 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Descent scenario is the reference point and context for the workshop, but David also draws on more recent published and unpublished work, including an Energy Descent Action Planning (EDAP) consultancy for Hepburn Shire Council (Vic) as well as his influential Retrofitting the Suburbs work that have evolved over time to the current public presentation Permaculture Surfing The Property Bubble Dumpers.
In this extended workshop there is a greater opportunity for extended dialogue to explore both the big picture scenarios and the nitty gritty details of in-situ adaption to the deflation/descent economy.
This event is held at Fremantle reception room. Directions will be given on booking.
$50 plus bring a plate of supper to share.
