Owen Hablutzel is a consultant, educator, and group-facilitator performing international work with a range of clientele to radically amplify practical whole systems design, thinking, and management for increasing land health, at multiple scales.
Living, working, and learning across multi-cultural contexts (North Africa, Australia, Mexico, Middle-East, Turkey, Canada, Zimbabwe, and most of the western United States), Owen brings a diverse constellation of experiences and training to his work with broad-acre and regional systems. This work integrates bio-physical applications (Keyline, Permaculture, and Holistic Management) with Social technologies (co-creative participatory process facilitation), and with a wider spectrum of practical, flexible, leading-edge solutions (social-ecological systems science) beyond sustainability.
Whether with farms, ranches, classrooms, non-profits, NGOs, government agencies/ministries, or other land-managing/policy groups, the core work remains empowering people and communities to enact transformations toward robust land health, adaptive capacity, and resilience through whole ecosystem stewardship.
Owen is a Certified Educator with Holistic Management International, holds a Masters in Eastern Philosophy (the original systems thinking & ‘science of the whole’) from St. John’s College in New Mexico, serves on the IUCNs Resilience Task Force and as a director of the Permaculture Research Institute, USA.
