The current state of global consumption and agriculture systems requires transformation. To progress, we must shift our attention from optimising output and competition to incorporating the knowledge of permaculture practitioners and farmers. Living Pedagogic is leading the way by implementing a novel method of art education, which educates students on the interconnection of living, transportation, energy usage, and production techniques utilising food, fermentation, and permacircularity. By adopting this comprehensive approach, learners gain a deeper understanding of the world and are equipped to utilise their imagination to effect positive change.
