Our planet is going though the most rapid rate of change in its history, and we face a future of surprises, threats and opportunities. We in the permaculture community have a key role to play in both mending the present and creating our preferable future.
To be part of this future we need to take stock of where we are as a design system. That's why Australia's permaculture community of practitioners is coming together in March on the shores of Bass Strait in beautiful Penguin, Tasmania, for APC12. Here we will reflect, take stock and re-imagine permaculture's role in a future that can be different from the usual depressing, business as usual scenario, and energise ourselves for the tasks ahead.
