The Sarkar Game specifically helps players (individuals and organizations) comprehend macrohistory – the timing of the future – as well as the structured shape of the future(s). The game also helps players scrutinize the leadership characteristics for themselves and for their organization or institution.

Aussie St. w/ David Holmgren

Aussie St; our shared suburban history and future

David Holmgren, permaculture visionary and story teller takes us back through the decades of our lived history in the streets where the quarter acre hosted the Aussie post war dream, through the decades of rising affluence and additions, aging and infill, permaculture inspired retrofit and on, through a gritty but inspiring and realistic transformation in the Great Depression of the 2020s.

Aussie St is a permaculture soap opera, made real by masterful story telling that sounds a warning and clarion call for direct action on the home front. The presentation is also a window into the rich palette of design solutions and tips that Holmgren has explored in in his latest opus, Retrosuburbia; the downshifters guide to a resilient future.

Come and be entertained, inspired and challenged by one of Australia’s unsung heroes, presenting in Hobart where the world changing permaculture concept was hatched on the fringes of suburbia more than four decades ago.

Costa Georgiadis from the foreword to Retrosuburbia:
This book is a dance, a tango between our habits and our actions, our visions and our intentions. RetroSuburbia boldly renovates what we know as our safety net and replaces it with an action plan; planning for the worst and hoping for the best. The answers are in the everyday. Let the transformation and retrofit begin.

David Holmgren ‘Aussie St.’

Aussie Street is the history and future of suburbia as a serious but humorous presentation by permaculture co-originator David Holmgren. Over more than a decade this presentation has inspired creative household and neighbourhood responses to climate, energy and economic threats that increasingly cast a pall over the future of suburbia.

Rather than condemning our history and prospects, Aussie St empowers and enlivens us. Aussie St is now a short story built into a new book Retrosuburbia: the downshifter’s guide to a resilient future. This manual draws together the patterns glimpsed in the presentation both of which have been transformed by Brenna Quinlan beautiful illustrations.

Castlemaine State Festival: David Holmgren presents ‘Aussie St.’

Permaculture co-originator, David Holmgren’s new book, RetroSuburbia: the downshifter’s guide to a resilient future (2018) is a bold manifesto on how to activate change that begins in the household. RetroSuburbia promotes household food growing, retrofitting and non-monetary activities of exchange and reciprocity.

In this discussion, followed by an audience Q&A session, David will advance the ideas of permaculture as a creative framework for applying vital retrofits to our homes, gardens and most fundamentally, our behaviour.

Come and be part of Holmgren’s insightful, thought-provoking vision for a life-enhancing sustainable future.
