From Resilient Communities to Youth and Farming with Nature, there's something to suit all levels and interests during this exciting programme.
The EUPC is our offering for this year, giving greater opportunities for connections. There's even more content than ever before, with stories from far and wide.
National, regional and local organisations are sharing sessions and workshops, as well as pre-recorded tours of permaculture projects.
The full EUPC website with programme can be found at https://www.eupc.community/programme/.
The primary working language of the convergence is English, with other options explored to help remove barriers, including some edge events in other European languages.

So that as many people as possible can attend, there is a ‘donate what you can afford’ structure to this event to reflect the diversity of communities across Europe. Cost is on a sliding scale from €15 to €100 (payments are in Euros rather than GBP).
A donation of €30 is the equivalent of just €3 per day! With over 30 hours of curated content between 8-17 October, as well as other sessions being organised over the course of the event, there will be plenty to choose from.
This event supports the development of permaculture all across Europe. Funds raised will be used to help support and grow our networks (particularly in more deprived areas of the continent) so that more people can bring about their own positive change. Your donation makes this work possible, so we are grateful for whatever you can afford to give. If you cannot afford the donation, then you can always apply for a bursary for a free place at the convergence using the form here.

We are relying on the permaculture community to work with us to help promote this event to the many people across Europe. This is especially true where the permaculture networks are not as strong or are emergent at this time.
We have a new Facebook Page aimed at building the European Permaculture Community here.
We also have a Facebook Event here. Please let us know if you’re coming and share it to your networks.
