The Friends of the International Permaculture Convergence (FIPC) nonprofit is an organization working in conjunction with the International Permaculture Convergence Coordinating Committee to support the conveners of the individual International Permaculture Convergence (IPC) event held around the globe every two years.

FIPC’s specific mission is to augment the funds needed for convening the bi-annual IPC event, with a special focus on scholarship funding for delegates traveling from all parts of the world to attend. Ongoing support for the IPC website with its valuable archives is also a part of the FIPC mission.

International Permaculture Convergences are the international gatherings for the global permaculture network where new developments are presented, discussed, taken in and implemented by international agreements.  For the permaculture community, the International Permaculture Convergences are hugely important with projects and actual working design solutions developed and shared for the smallest villages to the largest cities.

Permaculture is an ethics based design methodology for creating sustainable systems and settlements. It was initially developed in Australia by ecologist Bill Mollison and his then student David Holmgren. Today there are projects of every size in almost every corner of the world.

Traditionally International Permaculture Convergences take place every two years and switch between continents & hemispheres. Past host sites have been Australia, USA, New Zealand, Scandinavia, Nepal, Croatia, Brazil, Africa, Jordan, Cuba, and the United Kingdom. India in 2017 will be followed by Argentina in 2020.
