To offer high-quality training in permaculture design.
To this end we have co-created (and continuously improve) a unique Integral Permaculture curriculum which covers all facets required for the transition to a sustainable society. In particular, we teach the underlying science of sustainability to empower people and communities in designing effectively for themselves.

Our Team is formed by Inspirers & Facilitators:
There are many pioneers, activists, thinkers, writers, leaders, teachers & masters included in the Integral Permaculture curriculum, because they each have brought something unique and important for our understanding as permaculture designers & it is our job to know our history so as to skillfully integrate the best action-learning to date.
You can see our page for them here:
Each photo there is linked to a profile in the Integral Permaculture Designers Manual, “e-book” for short, that is the base of the curriculum we teach (please note that, being integrals, they’re mostly un-categorizable, but they are listed within the Modules of the curriculum).
Join our Team
We’ve been co-creating the Academy since 2001 through a cooperative of practitioners and teachers in Permaculture (starting in Spain, now internationally), and with it a continuously developing advanced Permaculture curriculum, which has reached degree level (the Diploma in Integral Permaculture), and in two languages. We’re now working on Masters level.
The EcoEscuelas Network project started in 2016, is bringing the online program we developed to places where the course can be done on-site whilst doing design work there, for people who don’t have their own Permaculture projects – so effectively it’s an open university of Permaculture in Action, networked and international. So if you have a project which could host interns, let us know.
We love to connect & work with more people who resonate with the Academy’s Vision and Mission and who are very clear that effective cooperation is key for truly changing the world.
Joining the team is particularly useful for practitioners who would like to help create the classes and / or mentor the students online, in whatever spare time they have: we operate as a cooperative, sharing income fairly, according to work put in. We keep everything very flexi-time & as simple as possible, since we’re all involved in several sustainability projects.
