Small and Slow Solutions

slow and slow solutions is a teaching resource for secondary schools, using cross curricular themes to understand the process of change and how to initiate your own changes
Coming soon, tackling the climate crisis with permaculture design

It has taken our team three years to complete this text book. We have been working with our local high school and across our whole community to investigate how we can raise this essential issue in a meaningful and constructive way.

Permaculture gives us the statment, ‘the problem is the solution’ recognising that a problem is the inverse of its solution, problems are not unrelated but directly connected to their solution. Further more simply presenting dire predictions of a problem so huge humanity cannot face it achieves nothing but either continued denial or all out nihilism. Permaculture is a design process that is inclusive, works out from one’s own experience and helps build a co-ordinated and unified response.

The 1975 ft Greta Thunberg

Greta Thunberg began her activism at 15, starting alone yet within months creating a world wide movement. We take our inspiration from her work, we challenge everyone who cares to set in motion their small and slow solution and lets see how it builds and where it takes us.
