We then spend 6 weeks growing our understanding of resilience issues facing households and neighbourhoods. We work at household and neighbourhood resilience in three week cycles, covering: Information, Design and Implementation.
We explore international and local examples of best practice and look at social and city mapping and then apply Permaculture design principles at a neighbourhood level.
We work in groups to map the challenges and through participatory design with community we design and implement household retrofits and neighbourhood resilience systems to withstand shock and disturbance and with the service lines cut.
The process will give you experience of: interviewing clients and design systems to address food, water, energy, temperature management, waste, medicine and fuel.
