Workshops


I am bringing design thinking and my experiences with ecovillage design, permaculture, and ecological restoration together, to play my part in the creation of a bright future of people and planet. I want to work on initiatives that help the transition of humanity beyond the challenges we are currently facing. We are struggling with climate change, failing economic systems, broken communities, and an education system that is slow to adapt. In this time of rapid change, we need innovative methods to address Wicked Problems. We need systems thinking and design thinking to effectively deal with complexity. These are the ways I can help;
