About IPC10

About IPC10 – the 2011 International Permaculture Conference

The 10th International Permaculture Conference and Convergence (IPC 10) will be held in Jordan across September of 2011. Traditionally IPCs are held every two years and switch between continents. Past host sites have been Australia, the USA, New Zealand, Nepal, Scandinavia, Croatia, and Brazil. The last IPC, IPC9, was held in Malawi, Africa, in 2009.

Jordan is one of the most water-stressed nations on the planet – with low precipitation, ultra-high levels of evaporation, and little vegetation cover – and the people of Jordan are depleting aquifer water faster than it can be replenished. In short, Jordan, and other countries like it, is facing a very challenging future.

The IPC10 in Jordan will bring together some of the world’s most capable permaculture practitioners, teachers, visionaries and activists, enabling them to share their combined wealth of knowledge, experience and inspiration with the people of Jordan, each other, and the world at large. The result is expected to be increased efficiency at bringing permaculture’s strong tendency to get to the heart of water, soil, energy and other global problems – by dealing with their root causes in holistic ways – to the people who need it most.

Permaculture is spreading like wildfire across the globe, proving itself as one of the only complete, solutions-based approaches to the growing challenges in the availability of water, food, energy and resources. The solutions offered also address poverty, human induced climate change, peak oil, species extinction and pollution.
