Permatecture Pro


Permatecture professionals address complex cultural and technical aspects of climate change including:

  • What Does Sustainability Look Like?
  • Can We Live With A Zero Carbon Footprint?
  • What Would It Take To Leave No Trace?
  • Do We Have The Will To Make Necessary Changes?

Permatecture professionals seek to tie disparate bits and pieces into a cohesive model.

If a problem can be understood simply, creative solutions are possible." - kg

Such a model can be used to increase understanding and inform design decisions. Complexity is managed by deconstructing and reducing the whole into discrete modules. Understanding relations between modules informs novel design assumptions. Novel design assumptions in turn lead to better outcomes.
