Event Description

“The simultaneous onset of climate change and the peaking of global oil supply represent unprecedented challenges for human civilisation. In this workshop I will present an integrated approach to understanding the potential interaction between Climate Change and Peak Oil using a scenario planning model. In the process I introduce permaculture as a design system specifically evolved over the last 30 years to creatively respond to futures that involve progressively less and less available energy.”

NB David Holmgren co-founded 'Permaculture' with Bill Mollison

How cool - Holmgren speaking in Brisbane :) I really like his hopeful attitude towards suburbia.
