A message from IPC India:
It has been a great pleasure to welcome you at the 13th International Permaculture Conference & Convergence (IPC India 2017) and we warmly thank you for your participation.
IPCs have been active since 1985 and are unique occasion for permaculture practitioners around the world to gather, meet each other, share knowledge and expertise and strategize about the future of the movement.
Up to 1200 delegates (including 350 International participants from 60 different countries and 450 local farmers) participated in the 2-day Conference welcoming 40 speakers. The main hall sessions were streamed live to reach even more permaculture enthusiasts. Following the Conference, about 500 participants came together for the 5-day Convergence, giving them more time to exchange, showcase their projects, network and innovate towards common goals. In numbers, we had more than 80 speakers sessions, 11 panel discussions, 5 IPCC & FIPC meetings and 4 CoLab sessions.
The IPC India 2017, it is also: The first ever Teacher Training in India, an extended 20-day Permaculture Design Course, 3 visits to Aranya Permaculture Farm during the Convergence, a 4-day Farm tours, 14 Cultural performances, Demonstrations of Traditional Village Living skills and 12 Edge events including 3 courses at Aranya Permaculture Farm.
We are extremely grateful to each and every person who participated in making IPC India 2017 a great success: the inspiring speakers, the absolutely fabulous team of volunteers, the beautiful performers, the IPCC & FIPC who supported us continuously, the sponsors and crowdfunders without whom it wouldn’t have been possible to invite local farmers and scholars from developing countries and communicate so widely about the event and finally the core organising team.
