I was just reviewing the videos from Geoff Lawton's onlinePDC and I came across the part where he talks about permaculture coming about as a response to a report put out from the Club of Rome.
The Club of Rome defines what it does as the following:
The Club of Rome was founded in 1968 as an informal association of independent leading personalities from politics, business and science, men and women who are long-term thinkers interested in contributing in a systemic interdisciplinary and holistic manner to a better world. The Club of Rome members share a common concern for the future of humanity and the planet.
The aims of the Club of Rome are: to identify the most crucial problems which will determine the future of humanity through integrated and forward-looking analysis; to evaluate alternative scenarios for the future and to assess risks, choices and opportunities; to develop and propose practical solutions to the challenges identified; to communicate the new insights and knowledge derived from this analysis to decision-makers in the public and private sectors and also to the general public and to stimulate public debate and effective action to improve the prospects for the future.
This is their latest video Bankrupting Nature - Denying our Planetary Boundaries - I found it to be very "permaculture-y"
