Kampen for naturen i et industrialiseret samfund

Kære alle perma-mennesker!

Hvis I elsker historier om stærke lys, der brænder i mørket – eller hvis I bare mangler lidt underholdning, mens I nyder aftenkaffen, så er denne lille dokumentar et rigtig godt bud!
Den handler om Pete og hans oase, Autumn Arena, i New Zealand. Det er en på én gang smuk og sørgelig fortælling om en mand, der kæmper for naturen, men må se sig som offer for det industrialiserede new zealandske mejerilandbrug, som har omringet og forgiftet hans oase.

I november sidste år besøgte jeg Pete, og mærkede denne forgiftning helt tæt på, men mest af alt mærkede jeg vigtigheden af, at Pete var lige præcis dér, hvor han var, som et stærkt og håbefuldt lys i alt det mørke.

Sociocracy study group Byhaven 2200

The aim for the 1st study group meeting is to get a first contact with sociocracy, learning some useful concepts, tools, and hand signs while exploring ideas and taking decisions regarding organization and garden work structure for Byhaven season 2015.This study meeting is not about giving a full overview of sociocracy, but to introduce some basic tools that we find can be useful for this organization (Byhaven2200).

There was thirteen people present in the activity. Most people were frequent garden activist. Three of them were new and very motivated to get hands on during the next season.
The workshop took place the 4th of December in Nørrebro miljøpunkt.

The plan went as follows:

We started the meeting by seeking consent to be the facilitators, which was followed by: the plan for the meeting, an introduction to the hand signs and explanations on why objections are seen as gifts to the collective that contains wisdom, and encourage in this way participation. The tools that were presented were: consent decision making, picture forming and proposal shaping.

We proposed to work with the ideas of vision, mission and aim at some other point, and also how to elect people into roles, and the importance of defining the roles. If there is consent, it will be ideal to find a date for the other meeting to deal with these topics.

Consent Decision Making (CDM)

First we presented the steps of consent decision making, which were also be visible on a poster on the wall to make it easy for everyone to follow the steps.

This process was immediately used in practice, Candela made a short presentation on the LAND gathering at Bornholm and she presented a proposal for the expected developments for Byhaven being a LAND center. There was space for following all the previous steps with questions, consent and intergrating the wisdom. There was not enough time to come up with a decision so we postponed the decision till possible solutions become clearer, in order to allow time for the development of ideas on the garden work structure for 2015.

Exercise Picture forming and proposal shaping

A 2nd exercise to develop a proposal for the how the garden work will be structured in 2015. It was done by first Learning about picture forming and proposal shaping.

We introduced the theory for picture forming and proposal shaping, showing some big papers were we wrote down the steps and explanations on why it is smart to do it in that way (according to human psychology). We all together used this technique to find out suggestions for garden work structures for Byhaven’s next season. At the end some nominated responsibles gathered the information to make a clear proposal that seems most useful for Byhaven that will be decided in further meetings.

Every one in the workshop expressed that they understood the ideas and intentions behind this kind of meetings and there is a common will to keep working and learning the sociocratic techniques.

People and Permaculture – Designing Effective Collaboration 

Denmark: 9th April to 14th April at Fejø LAND centre and retreat.
Click here for pre-registration

Skills and tools for productive organisations and individuals

Humans are social animals, we live, work and play in relationship with each other. These relationships can be hugely nourishing and productive, or challenging and frustrating, or both…

On this innovative course we will explore how permaculture design tools and other techniques can be used to help us come together and collaborate more easily and effectively in groups, businesses, relationships and organisations.

This course brings wisdom and tools from the People and Permaculture movement, Sociocracy, Nonviolent Communication, Dragon Dreaming and the 8 Shields. Participants will learn about themselves and about how groups work, and find new ways to bring regenerative design to their co-creativity.

The 3 day weekend (Friday to Sunday) introduces tools and frameworks to grow better organisations, and the optional 2 day deepening (Monday and Tuesday) provides mentored design time to help participants explore and bring these ideas into their own lives and work more fully.

Lead trainer – Peter Cow

Peter is an experienced Permaculture trainer and facilitator from Britain, leading People and Permaculture courses and Permaculture Design Courses around Europe.

A founding member of the Thriving Ways social permaculture teaching and coaching collective, Peter co-designed and co-taught the first ever People and Permaculture Facilitator Training in 2013 with Looby Macnamara. He also co-founded a British permaculture eco-community in 2000 where he lived for 7 years, in deep collaboration with the land and the community of people. Peter is passionate about using Permaculture to support insightful personal growth, regenerative relationships and effective organisations.

Den A. P. Møllerske Støttefond bevilger støtte til Det Åndbare Hus

Tillykke til Egen Vinding og Datter!

I projektet Det Åndbare Hus vil byggefirmaet Egen Vinding og Datter teste og dokumentere byggeriet af et åndbart hus, primært bygget af afgasningsfrie materialer. Projektet, der har fokus både på et sundt indeklima og på lavt energi- og ressourceforbrug, er allerede støttet af Miljøstyrelsen og Realdania, og har nu også fået tilsagn fra Den A. P. Møllerske Støttefond om støtte på 800.000 kr. Det betyder, at projektet nu går i gang. Dermed er den fulde finansiering af projektet sikret og der er samtidig samlet en meget bred opbakning til at arbejde med byggeri efter åndbare principper.
