Open to our Advanced Permaculture Design Students as well as anyone in the permaculture community who might work with GROUPS (i.e. multi-stakeholder) on permaculture design projects. Examples include schools, churches, business campuses, land-based non profits or ecovillage/cohouse groups.
Participants in this session will gain foundational knowledge of how multi-stakeholder design projects are different than "simple" stakeholder projects (such as residential) and why special techniques are needed to engage as many stakeholders as possible. We will briefly touch on the significant pitfalls of treating multi-stakeholder projects as if they were simple stakeholder situations.
We will talk about participatory strategies, the Rule of 3, types of engagement, design workshops and labs, surveys, awareness-raising and more. You will leave with at least a half-dozen techniques that you can bring immediately to group design process with confidence.

The Resilience Hub (http://resiliencehub.org/) is a collaborative non-profit organization based in Portland Maine. Our mission is to build resilience at the personal, household and community levels while creating thriving examples of abundance based on ecological wisdom. We do this by offering a range of events, education and training as well as resilience-building services (http://resiliencehub.org/services/maine-permaculture-design/) and projects (http://resiliencehub.org/projects/). We operate at local, statewide and regional levels (connected to and in support of other local permaculture "nodes.") Our work touches on all the realms traditionally encompassed by Permaculture (land use, energy, water, buildings, etc.) but with special focus on food and creating new economic models. The Resilience Hub (http://resiliencehub.org/) uses this meetup platform to organize and manage more than 70 events per year.
Contact us (http://resiliencehub.org/about-2/contact-us/) if you would like to offer a workshop through our group or to request a specific type of event or workshop.
