Solutions are in nature
The convergence is a 3 day intensive solution sharing event geared to improve and offer solutions that will enhance our quality of life, increase solidarity and our respect for the earth. Passionate permaculture experts from around the globe come to share solutions on sustainable living, renewable energies, positive economies, collaborative practices and local resilience, with the hopes that you will leave inspired, unified and full of amazing tools for change.
Second edition in Quebec
The Convergence is the sequel to the 9th Annual Permaculture Convergence of Northeast North America, which was held for the first time in Quebec, from the 5th to 7th of July 2013. More than 600 people from the north of the continent were drawn to the village of Frelighsburg in rural Quebec for the first event of this kind.
Given this success, we decided to create a permanent event in Quebec, and this year we are doing it big!
A meeting of possibilities
You will discover innovative solutions to enhance your ways of living. You may participate in site visits, conferences, practical workshops, networking as well as a fine night of celebration under the stars. The Convergence allows you to meet people from all levels – from the simply curious to the international expert – to exchange and learn all during an unforgettable weekend in an exceptional setting.
What is permaculture?
Permaculture is a design system based on the observation of nature and ethical principles. It is used in all areas of life (agriculture, economy, housing, health, technology, etc..). Permaculture is an invitation to design, implement, manage and improve all kinds of individual, family and community projects for a sustainable future.
