Scholarship support for delegates from developing countries

Dear permaculture friends all over the world!

The International Permaculture Convergence in India ( http://ipcindia2017.org/) is coming closer. For those who are intending to join us in November – the early bird tickets are available NOW!

To have a truly international event, that really represents permaculture as a whole, we need to support those participants who live in areas where they have no way of paying for a long distance trip like this from their general income.

We need your help to support delegates from developing countries to come to IPC-India 2017.

HOW?

  • Start a fundraising campaign within your association, your network or your group. This could be an online crowdfunder, a benefit gig, a cake sale, an appeal to members. Be creative – every £/$/x counts! At minimum, please send an email to all of your supporters with a simple way for them to donate.
  • You could support a certain delegate whom you already know with part of the fees or the whole costs. Tell us who you want to support and how much you can afford.
  • Organise everything yourself for a delegate to attend – inform us so that the delegate can get the early bird ticket price.

Delegates who write an application to the IPCC (form available on the websites: http://ipcindia2017.org or http://internationalpermacultureconvergence.org/) will get the early bird ticket price for the Conference and the Convergence.

Once you have collected your donations, please then send it to one of the following accounts. They will then make it available to the group booking tickets and making the practical arrangements:.

If a delegate gets part support from abroad or within their own country they have more chance to get support from the general funding.

The IPCC will do the ranking and inform all the funders about the result end of April/begin May 2017.

Then IPC-India together with the FIPC and the IPCC will support the delegate with buying the flight tickets, the invitation letter for the Visa and the support in India after landing. The delegate needs to have the money to go to the airport in their country, to pay the Visa and some pocket money at least. We will not be able to send any money to the delegates.
