Here is the presentation from the session
Permaculture and people

By putting the right things in the right place, relationships develop between them and they support each other. This icon represents a group of people from a bird’s-eye view, holding hands in a circle together. The space in the centre could represent “the whole being greater than the sum of the parts”. The proverb “many hands make light work” suggests that when we work together the job becomes easier.

If you have never seen the wonderful Swedish film Together (Tillsammans) here is a little taster, it explores the dilemmas and complexities of communities and human relationships in a gentle, insightful and highly amusing way. It gives a wonderful insight and scores 8/10 on IMDB which ranks it amongst the best films of our times. Well worth a watch if you can find a copy.
