...message from the UK’s Andy Goldring

Looks to me like permaculture in Australia is thriving ~ wonderful!

As you know, we're hosting the 12th International Permaculture Convergence in the UK this September. I'm passionate about getting permaculture practitioners from the Global South, so that the event is truly representative of the global movement, as well as to support their own work and learning.

I think this can be, and has to be, a breakthrough year for permaculture. With our 'Next Big Step' project we are exploring how we can collectively enhance our global networking and learning, and we need people from across the world at IPCUK, in order to make our shared planning truly effective.

To help do that, we've set up a crowdfunder campaign, and we've raised £5,959 in five days. But I want to raise a lot more. We've got just over three weeks to get to £21,000, and I am hoping we can push it a lot further.

2245601_300x300I'm asking if you can make a personal pledge - however big or small - to the campaign and then use your many informal and formal networks to share the initiative. You are influencers, so having you on board will make a big difference. Its a global campaign, and I think Australia can help raise a lot. The Americans, Germans, Italians, French, Spanish, Portuguese and others are all doing their bit too.


The campaign

Many thanks in advance for your pledges, networking and support. I look forward to seeing many of you at the IPC.


Best wishes
