Training Permaculture Teachers with Focus on Refugees (Spain)
Training Permaculture Teachers with Focus on Refugees (TPT4R) is an international teachers training course offered in English and organised by 12P Permaculture Design. The course will be available to PDC holders from any country.
The invasion of the Ukraine and the hundreds of thousands of refugees seeking asylum in the European Union has focused attention on the issue of mass migration. There is now a much greater opportunity to support displaced people by teaching and training refugees to teach and train each other. As the Permaculture for Refugees (P4R) international work group states, “Our aim is to support refugees in transforming the places where they live —be these refugee camps or communities in receiving countries — into productive permaculture-designed communities, and ultimately to equip them for integration into society for the collective benefit of all.” Following P4R’s definition, we use the term ‘refugee’ “interchangeably with asylum seekers, forced migrants, internally displaced peoples (IDPs), refugees and stateless person.”
Join us for an intensive training that will provide you with an invaluable toolkit to use in the classroom, as well as life in general. The internationally-renowned teacher Rosemary (Rowe) Morrow’s TPT4R course draws on her decades of permaculture teaching experience. Whether you are already a teacher, or thinking of becoming one, the TPT4R training makes teaching a transformative and fun exchange. Classrooms (indoor and outdoor) will never be the same again!
While this course has a specific focus in how to facilitate permaculture education with refugees, the TPT4R is designed for anyone who wants to teach permaculture based on Rosemary’s participatory learning methods. The course will help participants to:
– Change the way they think about education
– Move towards a permaculture teaching career
– Empower others with life-changing skills
– Learn to pass on knowledge of permaculture theory and practice in ways that creates real change in their students and activates entire communities
– Make connections with an international community of permaculture teachers
