This course introduces two main ecological design frameworks, Regenerative Design and Permaculture Design and considers current sustainability challenges for human society within these frameworks. Drawing on the work of John Lyle, David Holmgren and Bill Mollison, the course includes an overview of ecological principles in relation to designing "human ecosystems", closed loop systems, permaculture design ethics and principles, design methods and site analysis among other topics.
