  • 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.

    34. 34. 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)
    35. 35. “ 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
    36. 36. 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
