International Permaculture Education Network (IPEN)

Award Recipient

The need for the International Permaculture Education Network (IPEN) was identified in 2015 when experienced permaculture tutors from across the world considered Permaculture education’s next big steps – the need for greater collaboration and coherence among permaculture teachers.

Steve and Lachlan took on the challenge and started networking with others, informally initially, then formed IPEN as a member project of the UK Permaculture Association in September 2017. IPEN aims to increase the coherence and effectiveness of permaculture education globally.

IPEN working groups are now working globally to: create new education resources, support demonstration projects and teacher training, develop new core courses and model curricula, and share permaculture educational resources widely in many languages.
