Blueprint is an alliance of organisations and individuals collaborating on integrated design solutions for regenerative human settlements - inspired by the ground-breaking work of Paulo Mellett.
Born 1962 in Cologne, Germany. Nature researcher, specialist in the construction of Water Retention Landscapes, permaculturist. Director of the Institute for Global Ecology at Tamera, Portugal.
Since 2007, Bernd has been a co-worker of the Peace Research Centre Tamera in Portugal, in close coopeation with Sepp Holzer. Today Bernd Mueller is Director of the
Global Ecology Institute of Tamera and teacher of the Global Campus, an international training centre for peace workers. In 1986 he abandoned his engineering studies in the traditional university system because he did not find the answers he sought. He started his own business, ran a health food store, worked in landscape gardening and later in tree care. In 1989 he emigrated to Spain and managed an organic farm in the Sierra Nevada. There he found the necessary calmness to study natural processes through intense observation. He discovered a new, more subtle possibility of cooperation between man and nature. Today he transfers the insights from this process of self-education into the practical development of ecological models for landscape healing and the restoration of the Earth.
