People and Permaculture Design Immersion Week in Portugal

Summary information

This innovative course was developed by Looby Macnamara, Peter Cow and Klaudia Van Gool in 2013, following on from the publication of Looby’s book ‘People and Permaculture‘, bringing permaculture awareness and skills to designing people systems. The course is designed to help each of us find and foster regenerative ways to grow ourselves, our friendships and relationships, our communities and our human family.

During this week we will focus on ourselves as people and how we can dedicate our energy to finding solutions for ourselves and the world. We will be looking at how we can improve all aspects of our lives – from our health and well-being to our friendships and relationships and work life using permaculture principles and design. Participants are invited to bring a design project with them to work on with support, using People and Permaculture’s new design framework – the Design Web.
There will be support throughout the design process in different forms – one to one coaching, peer support, introductions to different tools and skills, and other tutor led activities. This support will lead us all to a deeper level of understanding of how to use permaculture design in our own lives and communities, as well as challenging and stretching us.

This will be a richly nourishing, empowering and truly life transforming course held by a cutting edge and heartfelt facilitation team, hosted in a beautiful Portuguese permaculture project next to the Atlantic.
