Regenerative Design of the Human Ecosystem

Permaculture and regenerative design works to marry human and environmental needs in a cultivated ecology.


About this event

This approach sees humans as positive change agents – necessary contributors to rebuilding and regenerating ecosystems and service whilst supporting human needs.

Whilst it has a very strong focus on agriculture, the design principles are applied to urban design, urban home design, organisational development and many more fields.

In this webinar we’ll start by getting an overview of Permaculture design principles. Thereafter we’ll look at a few local and international case studies, and debrief after each to discuss the implications of the models presented. Some of the themes we will cover:

  • Resilience in the urban landscape
  • Connection to regenerating rural hinterlands
  • Human health and landscape
  • Pattern-based design – in time and space
  • Economic transformations
  • Pro Nature as case study

She is a prominent figure in the Permaculture movement in South Africa, where she has designed a wide range of Permaculture systems – from urban gardens, eco-villages, farms, regional level action plans for marginalised communities and projects for NGOs. She has consulted on ecological restoration and land rehabilitation projects, spoken at many conferences and Permaculture festivals and run innovative training programs in schools (such as SEED, an award winning non-profit group working in townships and impoverished areas).

Alex has written a host of training manuals and teaching materials for Permaculture and is committed to delivering a high quality transfer of knowledge. Her areas of interest are design, seed-saving, food production, testing plant species, nutrition, broad-scale water management, natural building and people development. Alex is experienced in teaching across cultures and shares her wisdom with lots of heart.
