17Sep2013: Sustainability and resilience in practice

Cafe Scientifique at Launceston, Jericho's Brasserie, 4 Northgate St, Launceston PL15 8BD, 7pm start.

Paul Sousek farms at Cottage Farm, Jacobstow, Cornwall. His innovative approach to sustainable farming has earned him number of awards, including Farmer of the Year finalist on the BBC Food and Farming program, Best Small Scale Renewable Energy Scheme and other awards at the Cornwall Sustainability Show. Cottage Farm has joined the SuperHome network (www.SuperHomes.org.uk) as the first qualifying home in Cornwall, having effectively cut carbon emissions from the house by 100% and now hold monthly Open Days for people wishing to .

Paul was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia and emigrated to England in 1969 following the Prague Spring and the Russian invasion. He then spent 30 years in the Market Research industry in and around London, including running his own International Research Agency with clients such as Coca Cola, Hewlet Packard, Benkiser, Jim Beam and many other global brands.

In 2005 he became aware of an impending world crisis and in response decided with his wife Celia and family to relocate to Cornwall and do something useful.

Human civilisation has come a long way and this is often attributed to human resourcefulness and ingenuity. What is often overlooked is that the recent 200-year spurt in knowledge and technology has been enabled by the availability of 'almost free' fossil fuel energy. This is now being replaced by scarce, difficult to extract and expensive energy. In the meantime human population is in overshoot, climate is on the verge of runaway catastrophic warming, biodiversity is decreasing in line with historic extinction events, resources have been accumulated in very small number of hands with little interest in apply them to finding solutions.

So what do we do now? Paul presents his proposed partial answers based on sustainability and resilience, as applied in real life down on his farm.
