Sustainable Building, Energy and Community Weekend

Summary information
Summary: 

This weekend will cover key aspects of transitioning to a sustainable future including sustainable building and refurbishment, renewable energy and eco-project development. The first day of the weekend will be based at The Pines Calyx, one of the UK’s most outstanding examples of green building design and construction. It will cover the issues at the scale of the family and home, the community and the bio-region, considering how we can make out lives more sustainable at each of these levels. It will consider ‘appropriate economics’ and ‘appropriate education’, as well as looking at more down to earth subjects, such as compost toilets! For those who are staying at Rippledown for the whole weekend, there will be extra discussions, videos or other activities in the evenings, adding to the enjoyment and enriching experience the core course material provides.

For anyone who has already completed a PDC this weekend will help review your knowledge in these important areas as well as adding significantly more depth through both the expertise of the tutors (particularly in sustainable building, social enterprise and the initiation of innovative sustainability projects) and the range of excellent examples of sustainable building and renewable energy that will be included.

Permaculture Diploma Design Support Day

Summary information
Summary: 

The core of a Design Support Day is to provide you with the feedback you need to improve and develop your skills as a permaculture designer working towards your Diploma. It is suggested that you bring along two or three designs from your portfolio (these projects can be at any stage; one or two might be fairly well developed, some, particularly if you are just starting out, might still be little more than rough ideas) which will be evaluated in order to give you new insights and understanding of the design process. You will also have the opportunity to gain extra ideas and inspiration from your peers, and have a chance to form or develop Action Learning Guilds that can provide you with mutual support on a regular ongoing basis.
