Social Permaculture: Principles in Action

Photo by Lisa DePiano Permaculture as a movement has most of the knowledge, tools and resources that we need to create a regenerative society in the physical sense.

Certainly we can fine tune and experiment but the harder task lies in transforming our social and invisible systems. This becomes even more crucial when …

Bruce Katz on Opportunity Zones, Placemaking, and Governance

EXPLORE NEW GOVERNANCE STRUCTURES
As organizations are built or repurposed, attention should be paid to establishing the right governance structure and mix of public, private and civic ownership and responsibilities. Urban governance circa 2020 fits along a broad continuum between the public and private spheres, enabling new financing mechanisms and execution capacities.

Some institutions are public, quasi-public or public/private. They are established by the government to carry out public purposes and generally have a portion of their board members appointed by elected officials. The Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation is an example of such an entity.

Some institutions are private/public. Non-profit conservancies and business improvement districts have been deputized by local government to be civic managers of public spaces and have been delegated powers pursuant to public law. Business improvement districts, for example, are given the authority to assess property owners in their area and to file municipal liens and judgments against property owners who fail to pay.

Some institutions are private/civic. They are established and capitalized by private and civic organizations (e.g., corporations, philanthropies, universities) and work with rather than for the public sector. The Central Indiana Corporate Partnership is an example of such an entity.

Can Social Permaculture Change the World? «

Can Social Permaculture Change the World? « | Economic & Social Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it
What is Social Permaculture?
“Social Permaculture” is a term that has become more prevalent in the permaculture world to describe all the aspects of people-care and group dynamics that go beyond the garden and the food forest. 

But perhaps I should take a step back and say that “permaculture” is a global movement based on an approach to ecological design with an ethical framework, that takes nature as our model. By understanding the principles of how nature works, we can create systems—whether for food growing, shelter, or social projects—that meet our human needs while regenerating the environment around us.
