This is first a question for Paul Wheaton, as this discussion began with his musings about some kind of more involved training in skills needed for actually doing permaculture.

Do you envision people achieiving all of the goals for black belt across multiple subjects to qualify for PEP1?

If not, what would be your measure of qualification for PEP1?

I think for PEP1 there would be zero black belt requirements. Several brown belt requirements. Some green and white belt requirements.

I think PEP2 would probably be PEP1 plus a significant contribution to the world of some sort, plus a handful of black belts.

Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible - Zappa. Tiny ad:
