Cultural Emergence online community, courses and kickstarter

CELT outside

Cultural Emergence is a toolkit and book written by Looby Macnamara. It is an evolution of her pioneering work with personal and social permaculture (she is author of People & Permaculture). 

Online community 

There is now an online space for people interested in Cultural Emergence to connect with each other. Cultural Emergence is expanding from a toolkit into a global movement. Visit here for a free online taster course, and regular free shares.
