As a student of Sustainable Food & Farming and Landscape Architecture at the University of Massachusetts, I admire the principles and ethics of Permaculture. The more I learn about this approach of systems design, the more I believe it would be useful for us to utilize this approach in many areas of our lives, for example social permaculture.
The 3 Ethics of Permaculture are:
- Earth Care
- People Care
- Fair Share
The ethical approach of Permaculture is only the beginning. Followed by design principles and seven different domains on how to create a sustainable culture. I am not an expert in Permaculture (yet), so if you want to learn more, visit the following website. However, I do believe to understand enough, that we can also apply those principles and the ethical approach to our own body and our health (communal and/or personal). In fact, I did write a paper about this, titled: “The Relation between Permaculture, Human Health & Holistic Well-being. How Body, Mind and Spirit Can Heal through the Application of Systems Design.”
If you are interested in reading my paper, please let me know.
