Permaculture, as an ecological design system for sustainable living, offers practical and effective solutions to help people address global issues like food security, poverty, and the impacts of climate change at a local level. Grass-roots diffusion of knowledge about permaculture has led to an estimated 3 million practitioners worldwide, supported by around 280 strategic networking organisations.

Permaculture projects have a local focus and bring people together to support community-level action to global issues. More information on permaculture internationally can be found here.
