Assessment of the EPT Partnership on Educational Structures

During the EPT Partnership we gathered information from all the partners and other countries in Europe participating.

You will find here articles with the results of questionnaires we made at the start of the partnership as well as interviews showing the development and conclusions after working and sharing knowledge over two years.

This information can be used for:

  • each country and organisation to analyse and understand their local or national situation
  • between the participating countries, to learn from each others strengths and opportunities
  • countries in the process of forming a national permaculture organisation, to learn and understand different strategies and ways to adapt to their situation
  • students to see the strength of each country and study at the association that is most adapted to their needs

Questionnaire on Educational Structures

During the meeting in October 2012 in Slovenia , we gathered questionnaires on educational structures from Denmark, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Portugal, Italy, Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Slovakia and the Canary Islands and more. Here you find the overview, for details about every country check at the link.

SWOC (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Constraints – and Solutions) Analysis


During the same meeting all countries filled in a SWOC* analysis  of different educational structures. For details about the countries check the link.

Here are some conclusions and highlights of the SWOC: SWOC Analysis Conclusions.


Interactions Between Elements


The method that we used to collect information in every country we put all the elements of each organisation together. Every country filled in the connections and interactions between these elements. This is the article about Interactions between elements.

To analyse and improve your own educational structures you can download this PDF with elements of an educational structure, print it and make connections / interactions / find functions between the various elements, and have fun!

In all the country entries you find information about their educational pathways.
