Permaculture is an abbreviation of 'permanent culture'. It is primarily about thinking in general - and designing our everyday lives, communities, companies, and large systems to consider both human and nature's needs.
In the subject, we are working on applying Permaculture thinking in our own everyday lives - and use it as a tool to create our shared green future. You get a broad theoretical introduction to Permaculture as a design tool, and we look at lots of practical examples - such as the højskole's own demonstration garden, new forest garden, social permaculture and more. We also visit Friland eco-village to see sustainable construction, ecosystems, and local renewable energy solutions.
If you follow the Permaculture course for five months, you can earn a 'Permaculture Design Certificate'. You can use this to find worldwide volunteer jobs, to start a business, to obtain a Permaculture Diploma, or to become an informed citizen.
Kristoffer is better known as "Perma Kris" and rightly so. He is one of the key influencers in the permaculture society in Denmark.
He holds a degree in biology from the University of Aarhus, and is also an educated environmental technician. Perma Kris can take permaculture straight from theory to practice.
