Permaculture is a set of principles that integrates land, resources,
people and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies. It
aims to imitate and recreate natural ecosystems through the use of
closed-loop and no waste techniques. It has gained increasing visibility
in recent years, with the rise of growing environmental threats and
deterioration of ecosystems.
Where intensive agriculture generally
results in high productivity at the expense of biodiversity,
Permaculture indeed offers alternatives as it is a holistic approach
that encompasses a complete spectrum of regenerative concepts, systems
and solutions. In that sense, it is at the core of ethical education.
An Erasmus+ Project
