  1. 1. module 1 part 2 <ul><li>What are the Basis </li></ul><ul><li>of </li></ul><ul><li>Permaculture Design ? </li></ul>Class 1.2 PDC+++
  2. 2. Design Principles Ecological Principles Attitude Principles Ethics Directives Habits
  3. 3. have fun with your tree! (bush, map, island.. ) Julia Butterfly Hill
  4. 4. it’s a mind-map! make it personal & beautiful for you
  5. 5. Make it locally appropriate
  6. 6. Big is Good :)
  7. 7. & all together is even better
  8. 8. ETHICS <ul><li>What are the Basis </li></ul><ul><li>of </li></ul><ul><li>Permaculture Design ? </li></ul>Class 1.2 PDC+++
  9. 9. Design Principles Ecological Principles Attitude Principles Ethics Directives Habits
  10. 10. People Care put Limits to Population & Consumption Earth Care GOOD DESIGN “ fair shares” the Ethics of Permaculture The Designers Manual 1988 <ul><li>Limits to Growth </li></ul>(it is very difficult for us to understand / accept the concept, including for “alternative people”)
  11. 11. People Care put Limits to Population & Consumption Earth Care ¿Why have stated Ethics? ¿Where do they come from?
  12. 12. <ul><li>checks (contradiction) </li></ul><ul><li>reminders (to ask the “right” kind of question) </li></ul><ul><li>recognition (who is a permaculture designer) </li></ul><ul><li>vision </li></ul><ul><li>criteria </li></ul><ul><li>summary! </li></ul>People Care put Limits to Population & Consumption Earth Care ¿Why have stated Ethics? ¿Where do they come from?
  13. 13. Earth Care ¿Does the Earth need our Care? as a living system the Earth does not need us in order to survive This principle is about our PLACE in this System
  14. 14. 2 & 3 arise from 1 2 3 1 We depend on the good health of all systems for our survival People Care put Limits to Population & Consumption Earth Care
  15. 15. 2 & 3 arise from 1 2 3 1 Rule of Necessitous Use Rule of Conservative Use We depend on the good health of all systems for our survival People Care put Limits to Population & Consumption Earth Care
  16. 16. 2 & 3 arise from 1 2 3 1 Rule of Necessitous Use Rule of Conservative Use We depend on the good health of all systems for our survival Species Care People Care put Limits to Population & Consumption Earth Care
  17. 17. DIRECTIVES <ul><li>What are the Basis </li></ul><ul><li>of </li></ul><ul><li>Permaculture Design ? </li></ul>Class 1.2 PDC+++
  18. 18. Ethics are SEEDS or Intentions Directives & Principles inform us about how to grow these Ethics into reality
  19. 19. DIRECTIVES Self-Responsibility (or Pro-Activity) the only ethical decision is to take responsibility for our own existence & that of our children. Make it now.
  20. 20. DIRECTIVES Co-operation not competition, is the very basis of existing life-systems & of future survival.
  21. 21. DIRECTIVES Co-operation Pro-Activity ChaOrdic Balance
  22. 22. Continuum of maturity or natural succession D e p e n d e n c e I n d e p e n d e n c e I n t e r d e p e n d e n c e psychological development Child > Adolescent > Adult > Citizen > SELF- RESPONSABILITY CO- OPERATION DIRECTIVES OF PC >
  23. 23. The 7 Habits Co-operation Pro-Activity are a kind of map of how to get to >>> >>> in Class 1.7 !!
  24. 24. PURPOSE <ul><li>What are the Basis </li></ul><ul><li>of </li></ul><ul><li>Permaculture Design ? </li></ul>Class 1.2 PDC+++
  25. 25. What’s the point of all this? (What does it DO?? ) or MAKE

  27. 27. WALK the talk Eco Economics Energy & Tech Earth Care People Care Design Techniques Transition M1 M2 M3 M4 M5 M6 be proACTIVE
  28. 28. Barbara Marx Hubbard New Myths
  29. 29. The flowers (& fruits = PRODUCTS ) of this tree are beautiful, well-designed, juicy & NUTRITIOUS permaculture designs (or ‘projects’) which include ALL of these aspects (petals) include by design or by default !!
