Turkey: First Mediterranean Permaculture Conference

Source: RPC



The PDC (Permaculture design certificate) graduates of the Mediterranean and the Middle East will converge for the first Mediterranean Permaculture Conference. This event is expected to initiate networking and enable participants to share their knowledge and experiences in the region, which is still lacking in the global permaculture community. Collaboration in the Mediterranean area is urgently needed in response to severe soil loss. Sharing, documenting and database building for successes and failures in the region are the main themes for the convergence taking place at the Permaculture Village at Marmariç (Izmir) between 17 and 21 July 2012.

The PRI (Permaculture Research Institute) Turkey will be hosting two other major events right before the Convergence: A further Permaculture Design Certificate course will take place in Istanbul from 30 June to 12 July 2012. Mustafa F. Bakýr and Rhamis Kent will offer insight into the basics of permaculture and contribute to the emergence of competent permaculture designers and trainers. The first Mediterranean Regional Permaculture Conference will be held on 14 July 2012 in Istanbul. A line-up of permaculture practitioners working in the Mediterranean and the Middle East will showcase their work in relation to the conference theme "Soil". Attendance at this first event will be free of charge. More information is available here: http://www.rpc2012.com
