In September 2015, the culmination of three years effort and cross-continental collaboration resulted in a wave of permaculture activity in the UK and beyond:

  • the 12th International Permaculture Conference, held in the Friends Meeting House, London, September 8th - 9th

  • an International Research Day held in the Friends Meeting House, London, September 10th

  • the International Permaculture Convergence held in Gilwell Park, just north of London, September 10th - 16th


We are very pleased to share with you Permaculture Around the World: a collection of stories from International Permaculture Convergence 2015 scholars.

In early 2015, 238 people backed a crowdfunding project for a scholarship fund, raising £24,255. Many hundreds more helped make this happen by organising, offering rewards, and publicising the message. The scholarship fund enabled permaculture practitioners from around the world to come together in the UK.


Thanks to Robin. Thanks also to Celia for organising these after dinner talks - a space came up, and she asked me to fill it – I'm feeling slightly daunted! Thanks to you for coming to listen. I hope you will have some questions at the end.... I'll try and keep the talking to about 15 minutes, so we can have a discussion after. Robin told us about the start of permaculture's journey and the important agreements that were made back in 1984. I want to look forward and think about our intentions for the future, maybe for 2084...



This documentary produced by the Italian Institute of Permaculture explains permaculture in basic terms, filmed at the International Permaculture Convergence in London last September.
