On that process Helder been focusing most of his energy on learning from poor people in every country he visits and try to understand that openess.
After traveling more than 30 countris and working with people in the deep amazon were rivers have deep oil polution or with quechua people in the Andes and having to face air polution due to mine extractions, there came a powerfull moment of transition.
This transition is the vision of the New School Permaculture and its to provide alternative creative educational thinking and practice by supporting people on having a different perspective on ecosocial design.
To do that we focus on what is essential and fundamental.
On this course you will learn about what are the main patterns in education and how to manage them in a way that the students get empowered.
How to design a lesson and a classroom, how to develop a course, promotion and preparations, hosting and celebration.
How to teach a PDC or any other course of any kind and how to make a living out of it, supporting the needs of nature and of people.

What is Permaculture?
Permaculture is a sustainable design system that provides for human needs while having positive effects on the surrounding environment.
It is based on the ethics of earth care, people care and fair share, and provides practical solutions to the global crises we are currently facing.
Course taught by Helder Valente and the
New School Permaculture team
The course is presented by creative non formal education methods, that are based on creating a bridge between the right and left side of the brain, so that the analytical and creative abilities of the students get fully stimulated and get the most out of the experience...for many people is the most empowering and inspiring transformative process of their lives...and they carry this with them every were they go....and thats our goal.
