As of last night, the 10th International Permaculture Convergence is underway in Amman, Jordan. The whole event is being live-streamed here, and if you’re on Twitter you should follow @ethanappleseed for ongoing reporting and updates. An amazing lineup of speakers from around the world – well worth checking out.
More locally, next weekend (Fri-Sat the 23-24) is the 2nd annual Native People of New England conference at the University of New Hampshire in Durham. The theme this year is “Traditional Ecological Knowledge: Past, Present, Future,” and it’s a collaboration between UNH’s anthropology department and the Native American regional organization Gedakina. I’ll be going and posting about the event here on the blog. The conference is free with no pre-registration – come if you’re in the area and curious!
