Building an ‘antifragile’ organisation, using Permaculture principles

We ‘organise’ in order to build value.  However, some of our most taken-for-granted business models are being shown as fundamentally unsustainable, and fragile.

Can we make better businesses, which yield more (and more diverse) value, which are inherently resilient and sustainable, because they are designed on the antifragile principles we find in natural ecosystems?

This short course offers some thoughts about how we can form, design and lead our organisations, communities and other human social structures, from the frame of permaculture and sustainability – for greater resilience, innovation and adaptivity.
