For more effective humanitarian, refugee and international development programmes, please join Chris Evans, Gisele Henriques, Anne-Marie Mayer and Guests on the Permaculture for Development Workers (P4DW) 2019 course.
This year, the course will be held in three stages:
1. September 2019: Online remote learning (dates and times tbc)
2. 26th-29th September 2019: Face-to-face at Applewood Permaculture Centre, Herefordshire, UK
3. Post-course online follow-up tutorials and support
Permaculture is the conscious and ethical application of ecological principles in the design of sustainable human habitats. This course aims to introduce the use of permaculture design to improve the appropriateness and effectiveness of “development” through the application of ecological principles and design processes to programme design, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
Using case studies from different continents, and cutting edge development theory to illustrate how permaculture has been (and can be) successfully applied at all scales (household to community to larger regions), the course will provide an inspiring and pro-active set of tools to help international development-focused individuals, community-based organisations and non-governmental organisations run effective programmes.
Join us in September 2019 and help transform the development paradigm with permaculture!
