    20 Permaculture Symbols for Global Storytelling


    Permaculture – a set of design principles centered on whole systems thinking, simulating, or directly utilizing the patterns and resilient features observed in Nature. It promotes ethics and principles in a growing number of fields from regenerative agriculture, rewilding, and community resilience.

    Symbol – a thing that represents or stands for something else, especially a material object representing something abstract.

    Storytelling – describes the social and cultural activity of sharing stories, sometimes with improvisation or theatrics. Every culture has its own stories or narratives, which are shared as a means of entertainment, education, mythology, cultural preservation or instilling moral values.
