Integrating nature education, permaculture design and pattern awareness in our quest for sustainability. Click HERE for his presentation.
Join international nature educator, permaculture teacher, designer, mentor and storyteller, Warren Brush, for an inspiring sharing of stories and images that link nature education and the permaculture movement with our timely need for sustainable and equitable living.
In a world that desperately needs us to be caretakers and stewards of the ecologies that sustain us, we as nature educators are at the leading edge of inspiring a new depth of awareness in each of us and in our communities that will help to germinate a more sustainable culture.
Humanity has no choice but to look to the efficiencies of natural patterns for guidance in how to redesign our human support systems so that they are ecologically viable. This talk will inspire us to look to nature education as an essential tool and basic training for the journey we must make as a species to consciously design our way into an equitable, stable and resilient future essentially making obsolete the root causes of climate change, ecological degradation, and social erosion.
Warren’s stories will bring to light a hopeful vision for generations to come that derives from his experiences and understandings gained from his lifelong work in mentoring youth in the wilderness, learning from indigenous elders and cultures, working with child soldiers and distressed communities globally and designing sustainable human living systems and settlements around the world.
“Permaculture is a holistic design science that is reflective of natural patterns and promotes mutually beneficial relationships rooted in ethics and principles that guide us to live in a sustainable and equitable manner. The concepts and themes in Permaculture help us rediscover how to be a positive contributor to the earth, ourselves and humanity.”
