Friends of the International Permaculture Convergences (FIPC) is raising funds to support up to 42 delegates from around the world to attend IPC India in 2017, the 13th International Permaculture Convergence.
The International Permaculture Convergences (IPCs) are epic!
An event that draws the brightest permaculturists from around the world to share skills and visionary solutions for a better future. For more than 40 years permaculture has been leading the way with innovative, planet and climate friendly design strategies. Permaculture solutions are now being recognized around the world as an important answer to many 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 permaculture will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary!
The theme for IPC India is Towards Healthy Societies, with other themes including Women as Agents of Change. Founded by permaculture pioneers Narsanna & Padma Koppula, Aranya Agricultural Alternatives has been demonstrating and working on these themes for many years.
The goal for the IPC is to share our knowledge across continents and countries. We want to bring delegates from cash poor but experience rich regions. We need your donations to help them attend. Please support generously!
