A 4 day training for mentors, educators, and facilitators. What can we do during this transformative year of 2020 on our beautiful planet? We know the need for justice, regeneration and care for our children, youth, and communities in an ever-changing world which is so very different than the world of our own childhoods? How do we take responsibility intelligently? We know the moment is now. Everything we do to support the Earth and the youth of today supports the Earth and elders of tomorrow. Will we begin to learn to become the caretakers and the elders they need us to be?
The Great Lakes Permaculture Design Collaborative is a trio of permaculturists from Ann Arbor, Michigan; Bloomington, Indiana; and Chicago, Illinois. We’ve teamed up to create a unique participatory learning experience that can catapult you into a regenerative practice of your own. Through the grounding of the lectures and the experience of the practical work this course empowers you to take up permaculture design in your own life and to share a common context with the global network of permaculture practitioners. This PDC is designed for greater impact through active, peer-based learning using liberating structures and other learning approaches.

If you’ve taken a Permaculture Design Course, you know that this skill set has the potential to change the world. However, for most of us one 72-hour class isn’t enough to really deeply embed this knowledge into all our practices. This is a great course for people who have, or want to have, a career in permaculture. This is an opportunity to be with other dedicated permaculturists and experienced instructors to help guide you to the next steps you need to sharpen your design skills to a fine point.

The theme for the 14th International Permaculture Convergence is Children, Youth and Regenerative Education. The International Permaculture Convergences (IPCs) are epic gatherings of permaculture practitioners from around the world (with over 600 participants and more), to share knowledge and expertise and strategize about the future of the permaculture movement. They have been active since 1985 and bring together inspiring and experienced permaculturists to deliver diverse and engaging programmes. International Permaculture experts, teachers and practitioners talk and teach at these events.
