Have you ever been to an International Permaculture Convergence (IPC)?
They are epic!
An event that draws the best and brightest permaculturists from around the world to help put together visionary solutions for a better world. For more than forty years Permaculture has been leading the way with innovative, planet and climate friendly design strategies that are just now being fully recognized by the rest of the world as the answer to some of our most pressing global problems.
Held every two years in different parts of the globe, the next IPC takes place in Hyderabad India, November 2017, hosted by Aranya Agricultural Alternatives, where this year Permaculture will be celebrating its 30th anniversary!
The theme for IPC India is Towards Healthy Societies, with other subthemes, including Women as Agents of Change. Founded by permaculture pioneers Narsanna & Padma Koppula, Aranya Agriculture Alternatives has been demonstrating and working on these themes for many years.
For the Permaculture community, the International Permaculture Convergences are hugely important, with projects and actual working design solutions developed and shared for the smallest villages to the largest cities.
A diversity of ideas and approaches, by a diversity of participants, with knowledge shared across continents & countries, is the goal of every IPC. In order to insure diversity, donations are need for scholarships to fund some of the most talented & innovative delegates to attend.
Many delegates are coming from cash poor but experience and skill rich regions to share their projects and knowledge.
