On October 17th an interesting crowd of locals, regional organizers and sustainable net workers gathered in Landersdorf to share their thinking around regional development. In the focus was the question: how to create creative cultural dynamics on an educational and economical level in the area aiming for a resilient system adopting to the challenges we face.
In the open space time in the afternoon Valerie Seitz shared some related strategies she got to know in her studies on ecovillages world wide. And of course, the VISIpedia graphic on ecovillages was again helpful there.

The international Permaculture Convergence was a special event! More than 500 fans of this great ecosocial strategy gathered on the outskirts of London in Gilwell Park to share and discuss topics as: rocket stoves, social permaculture, how to teach kids etc.
A strong thread through the event was the discussion on what to do about climate change!? As disturbing as the reports were from people living close to the shore or in areas with wired new weather phenomenons, there was also such a richness of experience and knowledge in the circle that I left the event alerted, but optimistic.
The VISIpedia graphic ‚Ecovillage‘ was met with interest and several people signed up for the newsletter and info on the next VISI which will show the Permaculture Strategy on one poster!
