The 11th International Permaculture Conference & Convergence (IPC11), Cuba (Nov/Dec 2013)
Community Projects, Conferences, Courses/Workshops, Presentations/Demonstrations, Social Gatherings
Cuba, that started using Permaculture in 1993, brought in solidarity by Australian activists, has been accumulating experience and our Permaculture movement has integrated efforts with other important groups in the country, like Agroecology, urban agriculture, traditional knowledge rescue and others. This is also all within the framework of an environmental policy that puts priority on conservation and reforestation, promoting development with low energy use and low greenhouse gas emissions, and a dignified form of life for Cubans based on universal access to basic services like health, sports, culture, education and healthy food.
We hope to share our modest achievements with the worldwide Permaculture community, with emphasis this time on islands and urban territories and its challenges. Traditionally IPCs are held every two years and switch between continents. Past host sites have been Australia, USA, New Zealand, Nepal, Scandinavia, Croatia, Brazil, Malawi and Jordan.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Cuba this November!!
