IPC - Sponsors & Collaborators


Thank you very much to all our sponsors and partners!

We are delighted to have the support of the following organizations which help us shape this event and make it a great success.


Lush Cosmetics has recognised the need to support the development of traceable, transparent, ecological and ethical supply lines, which do not damage the earth, or the small famers which care for it. We have seen the relationship between peak oil, climate change and ecological degradation and conventional farming systems. Long and opaque supply chains with many middle men hide degrading spirals of social injustice and ecological destruction. We do not want to be a part of this.
The Sustainable Lush Fund was developed in 2010 to support agro-ecology, food sovereignty, biodiversity and reliance again climate change. Since 2014 we have had a happy relationship with Aranya Agricultural Alternatives and are delighted that they will host the 2017 International Permaculture Convergence.
