Here or on if you prefer - this is the first time that an IPC is live-streamed!

Watch from ipc10 at

& the Convergence 

 Whilst the Conference is the public face of the event, traditionally it is followed by the Convergence, which is the internal meeting of the international permaculture network. 

 This event is only open to people who have completed the PDC (Permaculture Design Certificate), & this year however it will be attempted to also live-stream some of it at least (although we don't yet know if the connexion will make this possible there). 

As we announced previously, NodoEspiral will be giving an open talk (also online & recorded) on the 21st of September, during the Convergence.
