Solutions for the energy descent future


Public lecture by David Holmgren

Co-originator of the permaculture concept.

One of Australia’s leading environmental thinkers’ shows us how  permaculture can be used as an organising framework to provide creative solutions at the local level, as well as increasing our self-reliance and re-creating our local economies.
David shows us how permaculture is more than just a system of gardening, and how it can be used to address the big issues of our time by helping us to reduce our ecological footprint, at the same time as providing our needs and contributing to a better world.
David challenges many of the orthodoxies and assumptions of mainstream sustainability with refreshing common sense and honesty about the world our children and grandchildren will inherit.
Come to be informed, challenged and inspired, so that we can face the energy descent future with creative action that breaks the spell of dependant consumerism.
Ask questions and connect with local groups and resources.
Holmgren will be giving a limited number of public lectures and workshops in New Zealand en route to Latin America for a 6-month speaking and teaching tour.  For the full program visit
