Future Scenarios in Canberra

What is going on in the world? What can we do about it, you wonder? Climate change, peak energy, and global finance seem to be the biggest worries of many people. Naturally so, because according to David Holmgren, they are the key elements deciding our world, and our future.
How are these factors behaving now, and how are they likely to behave in future and, more importantly,  how will they influence each other? What’s the future hold for us? This exploration of our future is very fittingly to be held in Canberra, Australia’s capital.
mugshotHolmgren Design, in association with Permaculture eXchange, SEE-Change ACT, SCPA South East Producers, Urban Agriculture Australia, Canberra City Farm, The Goulburn Group, Slow Food Canberra and FuturePLANS is pleased to announce this extensive presentation and Q and A evening to discuss such profound matters with David Holmgren will be held in Canberra on December 9.
David will outline first where we are at, and our likely future. Then he will offer a permaculture solution. He will offer direct practical strategies in his presentation to help households and communities survive, thrive and contribute to a better world, drawing on 30 years of permaculture living, teaching, designing and building agricultural food production systems for sustainable living.
Please do not miss this limited opportunity (David rarely travels even interstate). Be part of the session to figure out what is on offer and what we can do about it. Be part of the solutions thinking.
