Taking the opportunity within an active community to consider the relevance and importance of the permaculture ethics, in particular people care in terms of designing for our personal impact within our local and global community. How does our own personal authority bare significance in the world we live in and how can we generate an authentic connection to that which matters in the face of global crisis?
