Our Equity and Inclusion Fund is one of our many efforts to make the Convergence as inclusive and accessible as possible.
Applications are due by September 1. We give priority to youth and individuals from marginalized and communities of color. If you have applied to be a workshop presenter, we especially encourage you to apply! Scholarships recipients pay at least $20, and we do not usually provide meal tickets.
“Diversity is a core principle in creating living systems. That’s why I’m glad the Permaculture community is working hard to include more people of color and youth at the upcoming Building Resilient Communities Convergence. Cultural diversity will lead to a better conference which will produce a more resilient movement.”
