They contain surveys over some of the worst threats to the sustainability of our society, as

  • fossil fuel depletion
  • decreased phosphorus access due to increasing energy prices, combined with losses due to linear flows
  • long and energy squandering food systems
  • agriculture that is used as a converter of fossil fuels into edible products

 

The 'ruralisation' scenario is used as an example of how these problems could be alleviated by a successive integration of agriculture and settlements

The larger file also contains a proposition how the integration between agriculture and settlements could be used to create an economically viable association

Audience: People interested in sustainability, fossil fuel depletion, societal planning, permaculture, and ecosystem development.
