Community Projects, Conferences, Courses/Workshops, Presentations/ Demonstrations, Social Gatherings — by Roberto Perez Rivero June 20, 2013


Permaculture has for more than 30 years been an innovative system of techniques based on the best practices of traditional cultures of the planet, knowledge learnt from Nature and its ecosystem functioning and the adoption of new technologies that are ecologically friendly. All of this, combined with deep ethics and design principles to integrate the different dimensions of sustainability in human settlements — like energy, water, transportation, financing, human communities and other issues — makes Permaculture a unique experience for those that have been practicing it since the late 1970s.


Island people have been very active with the development of Permaculture; it all started in Tasmania and was established in New Zealand soon after.


limited territories with finite resources, distinctive cultures, relatively low biodiversity and high endemism, are ideal for the development of Permaculture systems. But island territories are also the most affected and threatened by extreme climate change events, high population densities, loss of traditional languages, techniques and cultures, and the worst trends of globalization — like the destruction of natural resources and the extension of big corporations and destructive forms of tourism.


Cuba, that started using Permaculture in 1993, brought in solidarity by Australian activists, has been accumulating experience and our Permaculture movement has integrated efforts with other important groups in the country, like Agroecology, urban agriculture, traditional knowledge rescue and others.

This is also all within the framework of an environmental policy that puts priority on conservation and reforestation, promoting development with low energy use and low greenhouse gas emissions, and a dignified form of life for Cubans based on universal access to basic services like health, sports, culture, education and healthy food.


Los Cocos, site of the Convergence


We hope to share our modest achievements with the worldwide Permaculture community, with emphasis this time on islands and urban territories and its challenges. Traditionally IPCs are held every two years and switch between continents. Past host sites have been Australia, USA, New Zealand, Nepal, Scandinavia, Croatia, Brazil, Malawi and Jordan.


We are looking forward to seeing you in Cuba this November!!
