  • Howard Odum Ecologista, – “Energy Basis for Man and Nature” – una base importante de la PermaCultura (proyecto de diploma…) 1) Ecosistemas como flujos de energía 2) Incorporando elementos vivos y non-vivos 3) Incorporando sistemas y economías humanas como parte integral del mundo natural.   Odum propone una Tercera Ley de Energía: “los sistemas que sobreviven en competición entre alternativas son los que desarrollan más poder (ratio de flujo de energía) hacia dentro y lo usan para sus necesidades de sobre vivencia.” Lo hacen:   1. desarrollando almacenes de energía de alta calidad   2. retro-alimentando trabajo desde los almacenes para aumentar influjos   3. reciclando materiales a según de necesidad   4. organizando mecanismos de control que mantienen el sistema adaptado y estable   5. haciendo intercambios con otros sistemas para proveer necesidades especiales de energía y 6. contribuyendo trabajo útil a los sistemas del entorno que ayuda mantener condiciones favorables, eg. La contribución de microorganismos a la regulación del clima global o la contribución de bosques de la cumbre a producir lluvia.
  • Y nota que los buenos permacultores ... trabajan en los primeros 3 niveles 9. Numbers (subsidies, taxes, standards). 8. Material stocks and flows. 7. Regulating negative feedback loops. 6. Driving positive feedback loops. 5. Information flows. 4. The rules of the system (incentives, punishment, constraints). 3. The power of self-organization. 2. The goals of the system. 1. The mindset or paradigm out of which the goals, rules, feedback structure arise.

      • We know that the options that we take in terms of technologies and which energy sources we use can totally change the course of history, and the appearance of our society.
      • But very few people really understand the critical foundations of these subjects enough to consciously and actively get involved in this dialogue.
      • In this conference we give some of the pointers to improve this situation. This class is part of the Introduction to Integral Permaculture free online conference series, see PermaCultureScience.com
  • What is a technology?
  • What is a technology individual collective Internal external Something that changes energy from one form to another The application of science Something that can change the course of history Something that changes the way we see things & enables or disables us
  • The Gutenberg Press The modern epoch Changes in education, times, knowledge & attitudes

  • Propone una Tercera Ley de la Energía Odum proposes a Third Energy Law: “the systems that survive in competition amongst alternatives are those who develop more power (ratio of flow of energy) toward their interiors & use this for their survival needs.” (6 criteria) Fractals, attractors 3 rd Law Of Life 1 st Law 2 nd Law

  • Resources Technology Systems People Culture We have technologies for increasing Collective Intelligence (= the capacity to give fresh & effective responses to changing circumstance = the power of self-organisation) & we can design with them
  • Resources PRACTICAL tools for developing Collective Intelligence, decrease inefficiency, support evolution of the group
  • Resources PRACTICAL tools for developing Collective Intelligence, decrease inefficiency, support evolution of the group The 6 Thinking Hats & other tools The 7 Criteria for Original Collective Intelligence of Noubel (self-organising groups, emerging themes)

  • Technology Systems A systemic understanding of our blind-spots & ‘usual’ communication problems: good maps & models that don’t blame & give practical answers

  • Culture No need to “ re-invent the wheel”: “ Local Agenda 21 ” is still The conversation of the century participate!
  • Sustainable Development is that which satisfies the needs of the present without compromising the hability of future generations to satisfy its necessities. (United Nations, Bruntdland Commission )‏ “ No nation can achieve this by itself, but together we can, in a global association for sustainsble development” Environ- mental Social Economic “ the big Three” WE ME THEM Local Agenda 21 is the Theory, Permacultura is the Practice (& the Transition Movement a great collective expression of this)
  • “ The greatest challenges for humanity are not hunger, poverty, peace, public health, education, the economy, natural resources, nor a combination of these or other matters ... but our capacity to build new social organizations able to provide the solutions Our greatest challenge is Collective Intelligence” Jean Francoise Noubel Intelligent Groups
  • the PDC+++ as a shared social & cultural context An invitation to take an ACTIVE & informed part in a planetary evolutionary dialogue Designed to be multiplied & support Transition Groups or sustainability projects, eco-villages ALL types ! Very important now Culture Never doubt that a small group of committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead
