Permaculture Ambassadors Conference 2018

Participants at a conference sit and listen to a speaker

Friday 13 April, 2018 9am - 5pm

Impact Hub Birmingham, Walker Building, 58 Oxford Street, B5 5NR.


Many people are creating a brighter future for their communities, caring for the earth and for each other, whilst living within nature's limits.

How do we share these practical solutions with more people to enthuse and inspire them?


The Permaculture Ambassadors Conference is a chance to meet, share knowledge and good practice, and to network with people from across Britain.


This event is open to all. Book your place here for just £15.

We also are offering accessibility bursaries to help with travel costs or care etc. Please contact Ryan for details

Our venue

Impacty Hub Birmingham - The LabBirmingham is a lively city, with such diversity of people and projects. A former market town, it has a past of being at the forefront of industrial society. Today, the signs of its industrial past are clear, and people are filling the gaps with inspiring, regenerative community projects.

The Impact Hub Birmingham wants to build a better Birmingham, through a collaborative space for a community of changemakers. Watch this video to discover more.

The Impact Hub provides a modern, creative space. We're glad to be working with the Impact Hub and are looking forward to returning there for this conference.

Getting there

Train + walk: Birmingham New Street station is a 15 minute walk (we know, we've walked it). Birmingham Moor Street is about as close, if you're travelling from the west.

Drive: We don't recommend driving unless you have to. If you do though, there's a couple of car parks nearby, with all day parking from just £2.50.



We believe that the benefits of connecting and learning should be available to everyone regardless of their financial or life situation.

We have kept the price as low as possible - just £15, with thanks to grant funding from Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust.


We also are offering accessibility bursaries to help with travel costs or care etc. Please contact Ryan for details
