A Swedish permaculture school using sociocracy

In this online interview, Laureen Golden (Sociocracy For All) talks with Andreas Jonsson, the principal of Holma folkhögskola.

Great presentation of a great school in Sweden.

Why Sociocracy should be a part of every permaculture project: The world of Permaculture has rediscovered many ways to build generative soil, sequester atmospheric carbon, and clean water and air. And we are starting to humbly connect to the natural processes around us, at the same time harvesting the abundance created by natural systems. As permaculturalists we do this while observing and tuning into natural patterns. So, how come we still can’t seem to share this generative knowledge and the abundance of natural systems to the whole world? It is because we are still caught in old social patterns, and we are often still acting as a pioneer species when we organize and make decisions collaboratively. Using Sociocracy is a great way to take the next successional steps in collaborations. Holma folkhögskola is a Swedish school that is based on the Permaculture Ethics and Principles. Holma provides adult education within Organic Growing for Self Sufficiency, Forest Gardening, Foodstuffs Handling, Building & Restoration, Permaculture & Transition, Sustainable Journalism and Media, and much more….

In this webinar, Andreas shows us around (virtually) in the school.
