The IPC is a unique event where the international permaculture community meets once every two years.
Conference: “Towards Healthy Societies" with a special emphasis on women as agents of change in building sustainable communities, being the main theme of the conference, there will be talks, presentations, panel discussions on a variety of topics like traditional farming practices, climate change adaptations, grassroots permaculture action, permaculture as a social activity.
We are very excited to have among the confirmed speakers are David Holmgren, Dr. Vandana Shiva, Andy Goldring, Rosemary Morrow, Narsanna Koppula and Padma Koppula.
Convergence: It is a five day residential, experiential learning forum where permaculture practitioners and designers from all over the world come together to hold and attend workshops, learn, interact, engage and connect more deeply with each other. It will be held on a relatively new permaculture farm, where we are going to demonstrate many live land systems.
Pre-IPC Permaculture Courses: There will be a special team of teachers coming down to celebrate the 30th anniversary of permaculture in India. This includes Robyn Francis, Starhawk Rico Zook, Jude Hobbs, Clea Chandmal, among many others.
We are also organising tours to permaculture farms around Hyderabad, as well as all over India.
