GREETINGS FROM ORGANIZERS

IPC9 MALAWI , AFRICA 2009

DESIGNING SOLUTIONS FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE - PLAN AFRICA: FOOD AND 
EMPOWERMENT

On behalf of the organisers of the the 9th International Permaculture 
Conference and Convergence (IPC9) that is happpening in Africa I 
extend a warm welcome to you from the warm heart of Africa. We invite 
you to this blog so that you can be part of the excitement that we 
are having in hosting this momentous event that comes on the eve of 
the Copenhagen summit on climatic change.  The IPC is a genuine 
grassroots movement that happens entirely due to the energy and 
enthusiasm of the ordinary member.

The Programme that is lined up for the convergence is packed with 
experiences from across the world that will be shared during the 
first two days. On the third day we have created open spaces where 
participants will direct their energies towards an issue of their 
choice. On the fourth day of the convergence we gather to share the 
strategies from the various open spaces and thematic discussions. 
During the conference we will have key note presentations before a 
tree planting exercise with the local people. After that the 
participants walk through displays and markets and network.  A group 
of over 50 young learners from various schools will be part of the 
conference gathering. The conference will be followed by a three week 
tour of Permaculture projects in three Southern African countries.

We look forward to sharing much of the excitement from these events 
on this blog. Welcome! Bemvindo! Bienvenue! Karibu! Mwalandiridwa! 
Sethule! Tigashire!Titambire!
