A Permaculture Model of Conflict Resolution

Bill Mollison and David Holmgren both speak about conflict resolution as a component of permaculture practice. This presentation will develop a potential permaculture model of conflict resolution utilizing permaculture ethics and principles alongside well established conflict resolution practices in a collaborative interest based model in order to find and develop ?common cause? at those times when it is absent. 

This is also an excellent model for collaborative problem solving in the search for ?common cause? within relationships, families, communities and nations. Practical and useful tools will be presented.

Gabe Barry has a background as an aerospace engineer, small business owner, carpenter, family physician, certified mediator and mediation and negotiation trainer. He has worked in the area of conflict resolution domestically and internationally in both the private and public sectors. His international experience includes countries such as Poland, Russia, Afghanistan, Sudan and Cuba. 

Gabe holds an MS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. He and his life partner Nancy live near Seattle on an urban permaculture homestead; have eleven hens, four beehives, two adult children and look forward to grandchildren.
