Permaculture or “permanent culture” takes its cue from the lessons that teach us how everything in nature works perfectly. However, to enable us to see this, we may have to drop our traditionally boxed-in thinking that has led us astray for so many generations. The concept of the overly powerful human is fast fading in the face of the changing climate. No engineering can help us reverse that; only nature can and only if we are willing to change the rules of the game. The “Not-Business-as-Usual” (NBAU) is a concept that is embedded in permaculture, which is contrary to our modern economy, where money-and abstract human invention-is dictating the course of action, as to where nature is the guiding platform for human actions. Sustainability can be achieved by understanding and aligning our actions alongside nature. NBAU is anchored on natural strategies and principles, which will guide us into building resilient and sustainable communities.
