Equity Inclusion and Sponsorship Program

The North American Permaculture and Building Resilience Communities Convergence is excited to provide a limited amount of scholarships for youth and participants from diverse communities, who are unable to afford the Convergence registration fee. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is August 20th.

Donate to our Crowd Funding Campaign Launching, to support our Equity and Inclusion Fund! 

Our crowd funding campaign will raise money for our fund. When you donate, you can receive exciting perks like permaculture design consultations, art, books and more!  You may also contribute to the Fund when you purchase a Convergence ticket. 


Please fill out the form below if you are interested in attending the Convergence and qualify for this fund.

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.”
