The Thirteenth Australasian Permaculture Convergence (APC13)
APC13 will be held in Perth, Western Australia, from October 2-5, 2016 with tours, workshops and courses to follow. Attendance and participation is open to all people who have undertaken courses in permaculture and who adhere to the ethics, practices and principles that permaculture is built on.
Attendees typically come from all over Australia, New Zealand and south-east Asia, but we encourage all practising permaculturalists from both hemispheres to attend.
APC13 is an opportunity for everyone to share their permaculture journey, their research into resilient and productive systems, and have fruitful discussions about the future directions of permaculture in the world.
We want to showcase best practice in sustainable living and demonstrate how permaculture can bring about positive changes in people’s lives, the environment and offer solutions to the inevitable changes that are taking place in the world right now. Please join us, and you too can be a part of the solution.
