About this Speaker
Morag Gamble is a global ecovillage and permaculture ambassador, designer, teacher, filmmaker, podcaster, homeschooler and founder of the Permaculture Education Institute. For over 2 decades, she has lived in a UN World Habitat Award winning ecovillage - acknowledged for demonstrating low impact and sustainable ways of living. Morag teaches people on 6 continents how to design regenerative human habitats and mentors them to become leaders in the transformation of the places and neighbourhoods in which they dwell. Her practical application of systems thinking and ecological design principles extends from home and community spaces to refugee settlements in East Africa. Morag is a co-founder of Northey Street City Farm - a 4 hectare food forest in Brisbane and many community food projects. She owner-built her own eco-home surrounded by her award-winning natural and edible landscape. She taught a Permaculture and Biomimicry course with Janine Benyus at Schumacher College, has lectured in universities around the world, and recently launched a global Permayouth and fellowship program for young leaders. She also runs permaculture camps for teens and Nature Kids programs for children. She also collaborates with Fritjof Capra to offer a youth systems thinking learning community. Morag's work as a permaculture educator has taken her to 22 countries. Through the Ethos Foundation, her permaculture charity, she offers support to women and youth in the global south to access permaculture education and create regenerative communities. Morag is a Warm Data host with Nora Bateson and has collaborated with the International Bateson Institute to create the first of the 10,000 communities project supporting Permayouth education in Nakivale Refugee Settlement. In her new podcast, Sense-making in a Changing World, Morag shares conversations with leading thinkers and positive change-makers with a permaculture twist.
