1. Upon registration, you will have to immediately pay the full course fee (for standard & support rate) by PayPal (international) or PayU/NEFT transfer (from within India); so make sure you have your PayPal/PayU/NEFT login details at hand and the necessary funds on your account before beginning to fill in the form.

2. INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPANTS interested in registering, please contact Nina on ipcpdc2017 [at] gmail [dot] com before starting the registration process here.

3. If you are applying for the REDUCED RATE, you will be asked in this form to provide an explanation for why you are not able to participate at the standard rate. Please note that we have a limited number of reduced rate spots available primarily intended for financially disadvantaged participants from the global south. We will give them to those most in need and most deserving. Payments and registrations for reduced rate spots can only be completed once the course instructors have approved your application. This might take up to the end of July 2017 at the latest, as more reduced rate spots become available in relation to the number of standard and support rate registrations we get. We encourage you to also try to raise your own funds for the course which might enable you to pay the standard rate.

4. We strongly encourage all those who are financially comfortable to pay the SUPPORT RATE, which enables us to make more reduced rate spots available to those who would not otherwise be able to participate. Any profits from the course will go as a direct donation to IPC India 2017, helping to make the Conference and Convergence possible. As a special perk, all those participating at the support rate will get a FREE one-hour consultation during the course with Rico Zook on a project of their choice, such as your garden, farm, personal permaculture design that you're working on, etc.
