About


Here we are practising open books policy by making Capacity+ Project budget transparent to our community and everybody else.

Capacity+ Project supports Permaculture Collaborative Laboratory (CoLab) in: 
  • Training and eLearning: through the delivery of training and the creation and curation of eLearning systems and materials we aim to enhance the capacity of contributors to meet CoLab aims and incentivise participation of unpaid contributors.
  • Circle incubation and nourishment: through incubating new circles (work teams) and nourishing existing circles we aim to enhance the capacity of the CoLab to meet its own aims.
  • Prototyping: through practically supporting the implementation of a range of prototype initiatives, enterprises, and services we aim to enhance the capacity of the CoLab to meet its own aims and to sustainably fund its existence.
  • Network weaving: through developing the relationships between contributing individuals and organisations, collaborators within and beyond the permaculture movement, and enhancing the collaborative capacity embedded in these relationships and processes (through facilitating social learning) we aim to enhance the capacity of the CoLab to meet its own aims.

Members of the core group of Capacity+ project each receive a stipend of 200 GBPs per month, to support the expected care work related to the project, the team itself, and whichever roles and responsibilities members occupy. See here for more detailed information, including pathways for engaging with the project either as a contributor, or becoming a core member yourself.

Currently serving on this team are:
  • Aimee Fenech (Onboarding and Startup Incubation/Project management)
  • Luis Tiago (Communications Coordinator)
  • Kate Swatridge (Project Evaluation)
  • Previously: Nenad Maljkovic (Agile Coaching)
  • Previously: Philipp Grunewald (Sensemaking & Evaluation)
  • Previously: Ewan Findley (Software and Digital Content Development)
  • Previously: Naomi Joy Smith (Engagement Design)
Contributors: 
  • Nataliia Bryzytska (Financial Administrator)
  • Jyo Maan (Training Coordinator)
To read more about our individual responsibilities and commitments, see this document.

Members joined, and therefore have received stipends, for varying lengths of time.

As some members are on PAB's employment payroll, their stipends are not necessarily reflected in our OpenCollective budget.
