I really resonate with what David Holmgren says in this short video about protesting and what Permaculture can do, how it can be used to eventually cause real change in our lives and our world ….

Here I have compiled a list of things the everyday person can do (change) in order to actually have a positive impact on this beautiful planet!

Even if you live in an apartment block and do not have access to or own a garden / balcony where you may be able to grow some food or even just have an ornamental garden for the value of a natural system to reconnect yourself in times of stress etc… you still CAN make the change which we all want in this world especially in the world of Permies!

Although some of these points are relevant for UK citizens, the same can be applied worldwide, you will just have to do your homework:

It is pretty much clear, undeniable and observed, that the Fossil Fuel Industry, Banking, Politicians, Corporations (especially ones which Politicians and Bankers have investments in) are the main driving force in humanity’s backward spiral to self destruction. Banks use our money to invest, and a lot of the time they obviously invest in that which gains the most in monetary value for them, these days it includes weapons of war, fossil fuels, unhealthy Pharmaceuticals which aren’t any good etc. one example being the heinous act of Fracking which is big on the agenda all of a sudden worldwide, go anywhere and even in third world countries the easily-bribe-able politicians there are signing contacts in this under-the-table / lucrative business (See previous post here exposing the lies politicians spew about fracking)

The future if we allow government and corporations to continue as is

Here are a few things we can all do, even if you alone do it:

  1. Change your Bank ( to Co-operative Bank ), here in the UK it has been exposed that all of the major ‘High Street’ Banks invest in weapons and many in Fracking or other older fossil fuel ‘technologies’, some of these banks even invest in Israeli weapons manufacturers! Barclays is the worse by far, with around £7.3 Billion invested in total on the weapons industry, they are rated as one of the top ten investors in US weapons corporations, the others are: Halifax, Lloyds TSB, RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland) and HSBC
    According to the PDF Document on the below link, Co-operative Bank is the only ‘high street’ bank which Does Not invest in weapons (You can read the article on page 18 of the document titled ‘Banking on Bloodshed’ here)

  2. Change your energy provider/s, there are a few green energy providers who only provide gas and electricity (more…)
