European Permaculture Teachers Partnership
A project that developed a community of prefessional practice across a continent.
This is a project that evolved from discussions I had with a German counterpart, Sandra Campe. It was funded by the EU's Lifelong Learning Programme and involved permaculture teachers from 20 European countries.
The project aimed to create more secure livelihoods for permaculture teachers across Europe by developing their practice & skills and accelerating their organisations' capacity-building efforts. It emerged from a need for more networking at the European level, at least until local networks can emerge and grow to a sufficient size to be self-sustaining.
So the aim of the partnership was really to accelerate succession in the European permaculture education 'ecosystem'.
