Australasian Permauculture Convergence 2021
celebration nature’s abundance
The 2020 Australasian Permaculture Convergence has been postponed to April 2021 due to the COVID19 pandemic. We plan to keep the program as close as possible to the 2020 one and will make changes as necessary.
It is a biennial gathering of permaculture people from around the country and the Asia Pacific region. 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.
The Quandamooka First Nations people are the traditional custodians of North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) and the Southern Moreton Bay region including Redland Bay. We pay respect to their Elders past, present and emerging. For more information on their activities visit their website Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation.
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 isn’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.
