Peak oil, climate change, economic turmoil—the problems our society faces are immense and structural, and they aren’t going away. Conventional approaches aren’t working, but growing numbers of communities are finding solutions by applying permaculture design on the local scale. This inspiring presentation looks at some of the biggest problems facing our culture, and shows, with on-the-ground examples, how permaculturists are creating resilient, regenerative solutions that empower individuals,rejuvenate neighborhoods and offer a path to a fear-free future.
