IPC14 Argentina postponed untill 2021

IPC 14 in Argentina, planned from 28th November till December 4th in 2020 will be postponed to November 2021

Dear friends of the Permaculture World, Children and Youth Groups,  Indigenous- and Rural- and all Communities Everywhere!
The IPC-14 Argentina will be postponed to November-December 2021 due to the consequences of the COVID-19 Global Pandemic.

This new date for 2021 is a first step, a guide for the coming months during which we will continue to observe the development of the pandemic to be able to make the best decisions.

Our wish is that the 14th IPC sees representatives attending from many different places in the world and for that to happen we need to regain our health, the possibility to travel and our economy, among other factors.  And – looking further into the future, we will use the time to explore additional online participation opportunities in many different ways.

We acknowledge the importance of Permaculture and the need to share this way of life with all World inhabitants. What better opportunity to do that than at an International gathering such as this one?

Very soon there will be a cycle of online activities organized by a team of permaculture members and collaborators of the 14IPC, in order to weave and strengthen the network, maximizing this time of change that we are in.

Firstly the facilitators of the 14IPC courses will offer some talks, presenting permaculture as a solution to what is happening in the world now. At the same time there will be videos shown of different inspiring projects in the world that are facing the crisis in an incredible way.

All updates regarding these events will continue to be shared on the official webpage 14ipc-argentina2020.org and on social media.

Sending you light, blessings and warm regards from the place each one of us is located now.

New Online learning platform

By Jemma Findley

The Permaculture Association Britain has started discussions around commoning its online learning platform. Testing of its first ‘Foundations of permaculture – Design for Resilience’ online course is already underway but planning how the platform and its future resources will be collectively managed by permaculture educators has just begun. The platform will launch before September this year and many educators worldwide are coming together through the permaculture associations global educators membership and its highly experienced voluntary Education Working Group to collaborate – utilising an experienced online-course / blended learning design team, our Certified Teachers Register and 30+ years of quality teaching experience. If you would like to join in with these discussions, join the global educators membership now and benefit from the twice monthly calls about all things permaculture education. They are also a great opportunity to connect with your peers during isolation. Last month we had calls in from all over the UK and France, Italy, Germany and Australia. Educators chose the topics in the NOG meetings – On the 11th we meet about ‘Maintaining teaching standards whilst teaching remotely.’
