Crisis of Civilization

by Dr. Nafeez Mosadeqq Ahmed

"The Crisis of Civilization is a remix documentary feature film investigating how global crises like ecological disaster, financial meltdown, dwindling oil reserves, terrorism and food shortages are converging symptoms of a single, failed global system."

This is a BRILLIANT synthesis by Dr. Ahmed on how we need to look at the converging crisis' of climate change, peak oil, food scarcity, the endless growth paradim and civilization as a single interelated process.  He is one of the most clear thinkers and communicators I have ever heard.   Well worth watching and sharing.  Did I mention that the use of old TV footage is hillarious and insightful.

Permaculture Property Checklist

Next in the Geoff Lawton Video Series

Hi, 

Geoff here again. 

My brand new free video "Permaculture Property Checklist" is now LIVE and ready for you to view: 

http://www.geofflawton.com

It tackles secrets to design - in all climates - that are extremely beneficial, for people who already own land and for people looking to buy.  And - this is something I've never released before - I'm including a 12 page pdf, "Permaculture Designer" that reviews all the key points, and includes a detailed checklist.  Just download that from my home page.

(You should be taken straight to the next video, but you *might* not be, if that's the case just enter the email you signed up with - the one I'm emailing you on now - in the form and click "Get Instant Access" and you will be able to login right away. If you have any problems please let us know via live chat.)

Warm Regards,

Geoff

All around the world people are asking what they can do to help to heal the earth. The permaculture movement is showing what individuals can do to bring health and happiness into their lives and at the same time restore the Earth’s natural ecosystem function. In “Perennial Paradise” Geoff Lawton shows some of the many simple but practical work being used and taught at the Permaculture Research Institute’s Zaytuna Farm in Australia.

“What if we Change” is very happy that through this collaboration with the Permaculture Research Institute we can share this film on the website and in the broadcast series in Africa, China, the U.S.A. and beyond.

Redesigning Civilization – with Permaculture

by Toby Hemenway March 8, 2013

Modern agriculture, industry and finance all extract more than they give back, and the Earth is starting to show the strain. How did we get in this mess and what can we do to help our culture get back on track? The ecological design approach known as permaculture offers powerful tools for the design of regenerative, fair ways to provide food, energy, livelihood, and other needs while letting humans share the planet with the rest of nature. This presentation will give you insight into why our culture has become fundamentally unsustainable, and offers ecologically based solutions that can help create a just and sustainable society. This is the sequel to Toby’s popular talk, "How Permaculture Can Save Humanity and The Planet, but not Civilization."

Holistic Management

TED Talk with Allan Savory

WOW!  Recently Maurice Robinette gave a talk about "Holistic Management" at the Spokane Permaculture Study Group.  It was very interesting but after watching this TED Talk video from the originator of the concept (Allan Savory),  I realize I just didn't get the BIG PICTURE.  Very worth while video with global implications.  Thanks for the introduction Maurice :).
