Nordic Permaculture Association

I hope you don't mind hearing MY opinion of the Permaculture Association here in Sweden and the Nordic countries...

If I understand correctly Bill Mollison wanted the PDC to be a sort of stepping stone...to help make our planet and our food better. After I , for example, got my PDC and then some experience with permaculture - His idea was that I could then teach to raise a little money...to put that money into my permaculture system.

But I see there are so many are trying to make it a business and here in the Nordic Countries to restrict those who can or can't teach.
They are making it next to impossible to get a "diploma". Up until just receintlye ther was not even a printed method on how to apply or even qualify for a diploma.

One of the problems here in the far north is the attitude that one should be "over taught". This is not something I have made up, but an actualy printed policy of Sweden. The education system is designed to "over teach" ...in theory a good though...but in practice it becomes very cumbersome.

The few diplomed teachers in Sweden and Denmark are trying to keep "Permaculture" to themselves. The Swedish Permaculture Association wont even list my project on their website...but have the board of directors projects listed.

I am very excited about Permaculture and what it can do - my project now is  almost 6 years old. The results are amazing. But I am not allowed to share this with others here in the Nordic Countries.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
