Permaculture: Changing the Narrative

Posted: Updated:

In ancient times our worldview was shaped by our relationship with nature and stories told around council fires. Today our world is shaped by stories shared through film and social media. We still live within the natural laws of ecosystems, but many have forgotten our important relationship with nature. Permaculture has solutions but the story is yet to be told on a mass-media level.

Permaculture solutions often threaten dirty energy and environmentally destructive practices which doesn't allow for these solutions to have a voice on corporate media in the mainstream. This is why social media networks are so important. Each time we share, like, and support permaculture or other "solutions-oriented" media we are participating in changing the stories that shape our world. The world is ready for stories of healing, for new solutions to nagging problems and we are the crowd that is changing the narrative that is shaping our future world. This is the best place to learn more and get involved!
