Science predicted the recent eclipse accurately using the same methods of reasoning that predict climate change.
Either we reject science or we have to listen to what it is telling us.
The Paris treaty is the bottom line from science, either we plan to achieve its ambitious and inflexible targets or we perish from our own stupidity!
Future Generations will have to embrace the Paris Accord as the minimum we need to achieve collectively to avoid climate catastrophe. Wales now has the Future Generations act and it is very much in line with the vision of the One School One Planet schools project and reinforces the timing and objectives of the project
That is quite something. Halving emissions in decade then repeating that twice more is only the beginning of what is required of us over the coming three decades. Poverty, inequality, health, education, jobs and community all tie into this bigger pictures.
One School One Planet is working with Llanfyllin High School and with schools in Africa to create a vision for 2050 the time by when we are supposed to be entering a carbon negative economy what is that going to look and feel like and more importantly how are we gong to get there? We are leading our community to build a vision for its truly sustainable future.
We want the school and its pupils to see themselves as the leaders who will bring in the new era. We live in such dramatic times we hope to present a positive take on that. An opportunity and renewal. A transformational journey even.
Please help us publicise our work and network with those who can help us.
Congratulations to Godfrey and Helen and their team members for this wonderful work at Nyero school Uganda. Helen and Godfrey attended the Sector39 PDC in Kamuli in May this year and are now working through their local community to help promote permaculture in schools.
Here together with 60 pupils and staff and NGO workers they have begun a school permaculture make over. Planting the first trees of their food forest, digging swales, making biochar and designing and planting tree guilds. We believe every school should be talking about Climate change and building a more resilient landscape. Schools can use their buildings and grounds to trap water, build soil and develop useful yields from what they already have and without significant investment other than that of time and energy of the students and teachers.
Sector39 are training practitioners who can lead on this practical and inspirational work to help build capacity t fight climate change and build a more secure and localised food supply.
Our next full PDC will be at Sabina School in Rakai District of Uganda.
Wales based educational enterprise Sector39 are teaching permaculture design in Uganda, building on the success of their 2106 course an with support from the Wales Government via their Hub Cymru Africa programme
The course will also coincide with a visit from a group of teachers from Llanfyllin High School who wil be visiting the area with Dolen Ffermio, a Llanfyllin based farming support charity. We are excited to be meeting teachers from our own community while we are out in Uganda running our permaculture design course
as it presents an excellent opportunity to develop links between this project adn the work of the school.
We hope to raise funds to support participants on extremenly low incomes attend this ground breaking course. Any support is welcome! Steve Jones
We are working in partnership with the Permaculture Reseasrch Institute of Uganda, PermoAfrica and Dolen Ffermio to create new opportunities for farmers, teachers, project leaders and social innovators.
