What is Cultural Emergence? 

Cultural Emergence is an invitation to create cultures of personal leadership, collective wisdom and Earth care. Emergence initiates breakthroughs that expand our thinking and enable us to build personal and collective resilience, and embody new ways of being and interacting.  It nourishes and empowers us to design the world we want to live in. 

Welcome to Cultural Emergence. I have been co-creating these empowering tools since 2016, with inspiration from many people. Around the world there are people who are using Cultural Emergence in their lives, families and communities for positive change. It is a joy to share Cultural Emergence with you, and to anticipate the positive ripples that may arise. I am excited to welcome you on this adventure into a hopeful future.

Celebrating 10 Years of People & Permaculture

Designing personal, collective and planetary well-being,

It’s been 10 years since Looby published People & Permaculture - Designing personal, collective and planetary well-being, in March 2012.

People & Permaculture is a pioneering book, it was the first book globally to explore how to use permaculture design and principles for people. It widened the definition of permaculture and takes it into the heart of our own lives, relationships and society. It helped launch and evolve the social permaculture movement.
