The Northern California Transition and Permaculture movements are collaborating to organize the first ever "Building Resilient Communities Convergence" at the Solar Living Institute in Hopland, CA from October 11-13. The convergence is designed to give leaders, activists, youth, homesteaders, designers, entrepreneurs, and anyone passionate about shifting the paradigm the opportunity to skill up and explore how we can apply permaculture principles at the community level to transform our economy and society.
The gathering will feature workshops and panel discussions from leading resilience thinkers and doers; a Transition Town-style market and community dinner; live music; camping; child and youth programming; and plenty of opportunities for networking, co-inspiration, and cross-pollination. We've also got a great line-up of keynotes including Transition founder Rob Hopkins; peak oil expert Richard Heinberg; Andy Lipkis of Tree People; environmental activist Julia Butterly Hill and Doria Robinson of Urban Tilth.
