Dear followers, friends and family,
Due to the Coronavirus and cancellation of facilitation events and trainings, Myelium Design has been forced to take some time out. As for anyone in the training/facilitation industry, this is a tough time and, as a small independent business, we need to reflect and use all our creativity to see how we can best get through this.
We have moved a part of our training offer online and we have moved all other in-person training dates to after the 31 st July 2020. However, since there are many unknowns in the Covid19 health crisis, we may need to respond and adapt the training dates. Beyond short-term considerations of health and wellbeing, we are doing a lot of reflecting on the paradigm shift that might be under way and what it means for our livelihood and our society. We feel permaculture design and resilience thinking has a large role to play in this change. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
Stay safe and healthy.

A part of our work is done through training to build people’s systemic skills and knowledge. Below you can find all our upcoming workshops, seminars and other learning opportunities. You can easily book and register for these events online. Difficult for you to participate in training, because you do not have an income currently? Tell us about it, we will find a solution together. We are looking forward to welcoming you at one of our upcoming events in the near future.

[Duration: 1 Day. Language: French] Compost toilets are efficient and do not use any water, unlike flush toilets which use over 30.000 litres of water per person each year. Instead, we can turn humanure into a sustainable waste system. Compost toilets can be made with materials found just about anywhere. We invite you to a workshop to build dry toilets from recovered materials. These toilets will be installed next to the educational vegetable garden and will be used during gardening times and for outdoor events. An opportunity to learn together, in a friendly way to then make the same prototype at home!
