In an interesting way it is actually about going back to its roots - which is why we say that the mother & father of Integral Permaculture are Dana Meadows and Howard Odum.
Now we are ready to understand the profound insights & wisdom they had to share, in their original form, which actually goes a lot deeper than including most permaculture graduates can imagine.
With this we don't, in any way, wish to under-estimate the primary importance of the restoration of vital ecosystems, nor, indeed, all the brilliant work done to date.
What we believe is important & urgent to do however, is to address the fact that things have gotten markedly worse during the last 40 years of passionate campaigning by ecologists and of demonstrated successful land-restoration work by permaculture designers all over the world.
It's not because we don't know how to restore vital ecosystems, but because we've failed to design holistically (including society's mythology & econom and our individual psychology) or in a truly integral way.
