The Transition Movement has been built around permaculture design, ethics and principles.
So what is Permaculture?
Permaculture is a design system based on ethics and design principles which can be used to guide efforts made by individuals, households and communities towards a sustainable future. (Definition from “Permaculture Principles” website)
Transition Towns are permaculture design applied to a whole community… and they focus on ACTION. (from “Permaculture Pathways” website)
