Sharing seeds of hope in our Social Permaculture seminar

Over 50 participants joined us on Thursday 16 May for a Seminar on Social Permaculture, held at Il-Kappella tal-Madonna tal-Anġli, Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq. The seminar was organised for people working with vulnerable adults, from people with mental or physical disabilities, to migrants, elderly people and people with drug or alcohol addiction. Participants learned about social permaculture principles and practices to create resilient and sustainable communities. Social Permaculture involves more than natural ecosystems and agricultural or gardening practices. Its ethics and principles can also be applied to other aspects of human life, such as education, health, buildings and governance.

Excitement filled the air as it was announced that we will host the next meeting. For the past year, we’ve been busily preparing the various facets of the meeting behind the scenes and drafting a green travel plan for participants to minimise the environmental impact of attendees’ journeys to the island.

Embrace: reconnect with nature

In Embrace we want to offer opportunities for young people to reconnect with nature. We want to create a caring community, based in nature to increase creativity, reduce depression and anxiety, and improve the ovehealth of both people and the planet. In nature there are no expectations to fulfil, and as long as we respect the different beings living there, we will be welcomed and included. Here we can be ourselves, individually and together with other young people.

HerpTrust

HerpTrust project aims to contribute to improving biodiversity’s resilience, by nursing and promoting positive Human-Herpetofauna Interactions (HHI) through herpetofauna-related adult education to citizens and VET. Professionals who live and work in nature (e.g. farmers, shepherds, hunters), and are thus in contact with herpetofauna species regularly, are the real countryside managers and the people who can make a difference, safeguarding herps and the rest of biodiversity.
