March 21-24, 2013: DESIGNING A CULTURE FOR SUSTAINABILITY Workshop at Terra Alta, Portugal

This year, for the first time, Terra Alta will offer an event centered around the “culture” of permaculture. This is a workshop ideal for anybody who works professionally with groups, community organizations and dreams of living an ecological lifestyle with others.

Throughout this four-day course, we will showcase effective strategies, design methods and tools that can create an atmosphere of full participation within a group project. It is helpful for those who are at any stage of project development – in its beginnings or amidst – as well as individuals who are seeking new ways to inspire others and make their ecological dreams come true.

Example exercises will cover topics such as open space technology, group decision-making, consensus, social patterning, non-violent communication, conflict resolution, social justice and dragon dreaming. Students will develop foundational skills in how to maintain social cohesion within a given project and/or organization – how to deal with the diverse personality types that interact within a project so there is a feeling of “success” across all participants.

Many have referred to this workshop a “practice run” for living in an intentional community, while others have used it to further develop ideas they have for ecological projects and even personal homesteads.

Facilitators: Mihail Kossev & Doug Crouch
