Body paragraph

Humans and our organizations are inextricably linked with local, regional, and global ecological systems. Sociocracy is whole systems design for how we organize ourselves and make decisions. Permaculture is whole systems design for re-integrating humans with the ecologies we depend on for our existence - for example water, food, fuel, shelter. Together they provide powerful design approaches that support resilient, adaptable, connected systems.

What do these design systems have in common? In what ways do they complement each other? What can permaculture offer sociocracy that may enrich and evolve human self-governance? How can sociocracy support thriving permaculture organizations?

In this presentation, you can learn more about potentials and possibilities. Our presenters are practitioners and teachers of both permaculture and sociocracy, bringing perspectives from their own experience and from two different continents.
