Sustainable Lifestyle  in Practice Course is a 10 day course combining elements of Permaculture design, blue economy and social design for resilience. The course will take place from the 24th of May to the 2nd of June 2022 at the Saja Project in Paternò near Catania, Italy.
*(23rd of May and 3rd of June are travelling days).

The course has been developed for those who want to understand the basic competences needed to transform our daily life into a more sustainable and regenerative one, to address the burning environmental and social challenges of Europe, and learn activities which aim to foster sustainable living, inner and community resilience, personal development, understanding and feelings of connectedness to oneself and to wider social and environmental contexts.

Sustainable Lifestyle will help participants to:
* Acquire knowledge of Permaculture theory and practice in ways that create real change in their daily life and activates communities;
* Develop and deepen facilitation skills through non-formal education and active learning;
* Apply the ecological principles of Permaculture to social structures to create solid and efficient organizations;
* Study economic models used to develop and enrich local communities (social innovation and enterprise, alternative currencies, time banks, LETS schemes, divestment, right livelihoods);
* Use "Systems Theory" to identify the leverage points to support positive transformation of society;
* Design community resilience.

Facilitators: Salvatore Giaccone, Manuela Trovato, other experienced facilitators from our network.
