- Italy PDC Pavia University. September 2016 Lead tutor Robyn Francis and Steve Hart with a focus on urban renewal of the city of Pavia. In collaboration with Pavia University. From the early work of “Europan Pavia”. http://www.europan.at/e12-forum-pavia.html.
This is an exciting opportunity for any designer of any discipline of the built environment be it in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, engineering or social science. We will overlay Permaculture principles into the entire city of Pavia to explore how Permaculture philosophy and practices can invigorate the city giving it life and inspiration for its future vitality. You will take this experience to feel capable and competent to apply it as a template to any community of any scale anywhere across the globe. Our challenge is based around the concepts of Ecologically Sustainable Self Reliant Communities. It will bring together the design disciplines and all others who would like to immerse themselves into this exciting design exercise. Pre-register now to be part of this opportunity.
This incredible opportunity has been postponed due to the struggles of Italian academic bureaucrazy. It certainly had great promise. We have been invited to consider other similar projects so we will keep you posted. Steve Hart
