space and events. Providing opportunity to raise awareness and engagement. Having a designed tool with
steps to follow we don’t waste time and stay focus.

collect information. Also it puts the focus on the identification and characterization of the Human Being as
a key element in the Permaculture design project, as the one responsible for observation, taking decisions
and interacting with the environment. The result will be a personal map that will allow us to see us from
the outside, as observers, having a picture of who, where and what we are at the moment. As so, we are
able to take decisions loosing less energy and projecting ourselves in the world aligned with the current
vision of our being.
