The world is changing, and as a community we must shape an informed vision of what we want for our collective future. This will require a whole new way of thinking about our role on this planet, and a whole new way of living!

We have been successful in our bid for funding to support Llanfyllin High School and community in a three year project to place Powys on the map as the frontline for innovation and change. We have been working with staff and students at Llanfyllin High School on a unique project to bring permaculture principles into the mainstream curriculum.

Ultimately we plan to assist students in creating a permaculture design for the whole school, building a transition timeline to a carbon negative Llanfyllin by 2046 – vision and plan shaped by the whole community and for the wider benefit of all. As a major hub in the local community (one of the area’s largest employers, and one of the largest consumers of resources), this will be a unique opportunity to put permaculture principles into action and to reach new audiences.

This exciting project commenced in September 2016 with the aim to find and work with the leaders of the future. Our goal is to build an inclusive vision for our community, one that recognises and understands our responsibilities as global citizens and one that creates exciting new opportunities for work, play and learning, while also meeting our commitments to the Paris Climate Agreement.

The project aims outlined below are just some of the plans we have in mind to bring about the complete social, economic and cognitive transformations required of us if we are to overcome and adapt to the challenge of our changing climate.

This blog will be a record of our activities.
