Finding the Balance between Creativity of Emergence and the Stability of Design
Here are some notes from Fritjof Capra on the Center for Ecoliteracy site that are worth sharing. Have a read and let me know what you think.
Capra points out the connection between community and sustainability, and recognisies that the basic principles of ecology can also be applied to community. This is especially true in leadership and bringing about [or designing for] change in our societies.
Sustainability is a community practice. This is the FIRST profound lesson from nature,
“To sustain life is to build and nurture community.”
It means a human community lives with other communities in ways that are mutually beneficial according to their own natures. It is not a static state but in continual coevolution.

EDUCATION IS THE KEY
Education is the key to accelerating transition.
El Manzano is developing a national and regional team of highly competent teachers and facilitators, curriculum, courses and educational material.
Our courses are focused on two core aspects of transition culture; Ecoliteracy - understanding natures patterns and Regenerative Design - the application of design principles for creating resilient systems.
We offer a range of educational experiences.
