About Permaculture & Sustainability

Permaculture

Permaculture is a design science used to create landscapes that provide access to food, water, medicinal plants, energy and shelter for people while also benefiting soil, plants and wildlife.

A set of 3 ethics and 12 principles guides the design of permaculture systems.

Veganic Permaculture

Veganism seeks to avoid all forms of animal cruelty and exploitation.
It is the fastest growing movement of social justice worldwide and can greatly benefits not only the animals but also our health and the environment.

Where traditional permaculture often integrates chicken and other farm animals, veganic permaculture doesn’t rely on the use of animal products and services, and it reaches beyond the 3 permaculture ethics to shape a better world for all.

Sustainability

A common definition of sustainability is “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. 

It is often associated with 3 dimensions:

  • Economic sustainability
  • Social sustainability
  • Environmental sustainability

The United Nations at the COP 21 in Paris in 2015 have developed the Agenda 2030, which entails specific goals to achieve global sustainability by 2030. These are known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
