Research study on Usefulness of Permaculture Principles as a tool to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

My name is Flavia Cardenas and I am a sustainability science expert, new to the world of permaculture. Currently, I am working as a volunteer with the German NGO SONED e.V (Southern Networks for Environment and Development) in Berlin, and Joel Campe from the permakultur-akademie.net (in Germany) thought the Permaculture Association Britain could help me.

With SONED, I am looking to develop a document showing the usefulness of the permaculture principles as a tool to achieve the Sustainable development goals (SDGs).
