Tackling Peak Oil, Climate Change and Economic Breakdown

The Powerdown Course

The course is sub-titled "training for leadership, livelihoods and resilient
communities". A bit of a mouthful and daunting at first but what it really boils
down to is three simple themes:

Anyone who is willing to engage with the challenges of peak oil, climate change
and sustainability issues and to work towards the goal of sustainable living both
in their own lives and within their communities.

Creating and nurturing a lean local economy that is an inevitable outcome of
peak oil and a pre-requisite for tackling climate change and resource depletion.

Resilient Communities
First recognising that we currently lack the ability to withstand the shocks
that are coming down the line and that we need to become more self-reliant
and resilient in terms of energy supply, food security, transportation and local
economic activity.
