Permaculture is an holistic and ecologic design system, it help us design or redesign human settlements by using ecology as the base of study, design and create systems that are sustainable, functional and integrated. It can also be considered as a social movement that offers positive solutions for the challenges in social sustainability, likewise, it is proposed as a tool for all the people that want to be responsible of their own future as well as the future of the planet.

The workshop uses as its guideline the permaculture principles, but it is focused on techniques for Arid to Semi-Arid areas where rainfall is lower than 400mm (15.7 inches) of rain per year.

The course/workshop “Applied Permaculture Workshop for Dry Environments” is a theoretical/practical course ran over 5 days. Didactic materials for the course/workshop include presentations, projections, audio-visual material, workshops and debates.

The Objective is to provide the attendants with an understanding of sustainability through the eyes of a Permaculture design system focussed in dry areas, including topics such as healthy food production, natural building, energy accountability, capture and conservation of water and any possible element required to design a natural system, and therefore promoting a change in their attitude that facilitates a transition from an not sustainable high energy consumption culture into a sustainable low energy consumption culture

It is addressed to any person who is interested in learning how to make sustainable designs, no matter their educational or experience level. The focus is for any person in the world covering so it can be applied at any level: urban, rural, scholar, corporation, institutional or government.

The information contained in the course/workshop has been designed to cover the most relevant aspects. By undertaking it, the attendants will understand how Permaculture principles work and how can a healthy and fertile system work.
