The Australasian Permaculture Convergence is a biennial gathering of permaculture people from around the Asia Pacific region.
The venue is in a bushland setting at Redland Bay, close to Brisbane.
The Convergence is being organised by Northey Street City Farm on behalf of Permaculture Australia.
The program will include talks and workshops covering topics relevant to the three ethics of Permaculture, which are Earth Care, People Care, and Fair Share.
We feel it is important to explore the bigger picture of what true sustainability entails. Earth Care is obviously essential, however without People Care and nurturing healthy, sustainable relating, the task of coming together and working as a community can be greatly hindered. Finally, if attention and conscious intention aren’t given to the economic sustainability of communities, and the distribution of resources isn’t managed equitably, then communities may struggle to be truly sustainable in the long term.
As well as thought-provoking keynote speakers, the daytime workshops will each be 90 minutes long to allow for more participation and hands-on activities.
There will also be opportunities for some 10-minute presentations or project reports one evening, and a project poster display area to share your projects with everyone at the Convergence.
Keynote speakers confirmed so far include Starhawk, Stuart Andrews, and Robyn Francis. For more information go to www.apc.nscf.org.au
Ticket prices include participation in all workshops and activities, as well as GST and booking fees. Accommodation is from Sunday night 19 April to Wednesday night 22 April as the Convergence ends after lunch on Thursday.
Please bring your own bedding, or indicate when booking that you’ll need bedding provided by the venue, as the venue will charge an extra $16.50 for bedding.
All people with an interest in permaculture and regenerative development are invited to join us for 4 days of workshops, hands-on activities, and discussions on how we can both celebrate and support nature’s abundance.
