Re-thinking our ‘built to fail’ society

In this time of great change in the world! we need to rethink consumption and business!

 

Business of the future need to be dynamic and adaptable so as to shift to a greater goal or product when a niche in human needs has been filled. 

 

Changing from static single item or service business will facilitate the letting go of this need for buying the product over and over. 

 

Designing products so that they are deconstructable, a bette phone, that uses less battery and is less toxic, or has no harmful radiation is a good thing but only when the item it replaces can be deconstructed completely and returned to the cycle of production.

 

P3 Permaculture is in such a mode of restructuring where we are designing a Ecosystem of enterprises interconnected businesses that utilise wastes and resources in an efficient way.

 

Once we all know what Ecological design is then the business can shift to implementing this in the ground for our present and future. 

 

Once the micro scale has been achieved then we begin redesigning and designing whole cities and global infrastructure. 

 

Imagine if you had to go back to elementary every 10 years because there is a new model of education. 

 

we are trapped in a consumer slavery that needs to be broken so we can grow beyond this as a globally united species of earth!
