The Integral Permaculture Academy announced the following message at the end of September:
“We are sorry to inform you that Stefania Stella Strega Scoz has passed away. Our activities will be on hold for the time being while we focus on grieving this great loss. As soon as we can, we will continue with the work to keep manifesting her visions and honor her life mission.
We have also created this Facebook Group to share about her and the any ways in which she enriched our lives, and you are also invited to contribute in honoring her together.”
Stella has been part of a group of enthusiastic people that discussed the creation of the European Permaculture Network in 2014. During this, she was very keen on promoting online collaboration to increase our focus on working locally.
A member of the European Permaculture network writes: “I invite you all to look at the Manual the Academy has created (collaboration of many students and mentors) and maybe you feel inclined to help build it even further. Her legacy lives on in that way.”
It was very sad and completely unexpected news to hear of Stellas death. We wish that family, friends, partners and students at the Integral Permaculture Academy find good ways of saying goodbye, grieving and caring for each other.
During the EuPC in Ireland, which took place between August 8th and 13th, 2018 in the Wicklow mountains, daily EuPN-meetings took place.
We used the arrival day of the 8th to discuss and clarify how we would want to spend the following days and what we would like to get out of them. We wanted to take ourselves through a process which started out with a vision: in 2023, we want to have a big party to celebrate our achievements as the European Permaculture Network. How do we get there?
The EuPC started on the morning of the 9th with an Elders-panel. Ten people shared what brought them to permaculture and where they are at now. At the end of this panel, we had the opportunity to present the EuPN, to outline its roots at the European Permaculture Institute and to mention the vision that we are working towards. It was important to us to say that the EuPC is the meeting space of EuPN. At the end of this mini-presentation, we invited the EuPC-participants to join our first session: to plan the party in 2023.
