Permaction in the brown tech future (video)

Penguin, Tasmania

Earlier this year, permaculture activists from Australia and New Zealand converged to a tiny town in Tasmania for the 12th get together. There, as one of the key note speakers, and a co-founder of the concept nearly four decades ago in Tasmania, David Holmgren delivered this speech. We posted the text of the speech earlier and now you can watch him on the video (thanks to Adam Hogg for creating and Eric Smith for posting it).

There are other videos from the APC12 on the official website including Stuart Hill (emeritus professor and foundation chair of Social Ecology at University of Western Sydney) discussing permaculture’s achievements and challenges.

  1. David Holmgren

    Just a point of correction. At some point I refered the greenhouse gas emissions being the lowest “in the world” when I meant to say “in Australia”. Hopefully we can see if anything can be done to improve the audio on this presentation which I feel is a clear explanation of permaculture as politiical activism.

  2. Yes please – a transcript perhaps…not sure how much the crying babies would have got out of this talk, but their presence makes listening very difficult.
