NORDISK PERMAKULTUR FESTIVAL

I 2016 finder Nordisk Permakultur Festival for første gang sted i Finland!
 
Dermed bliver årets festival den sjette i rækken. Drømmen om at festivallen kunne blive en rotererende begivenhed i hele Norden er kommet i opfyldelse. Kom med og bliv en del af et positivt, fremadsynet og visionært netværk af folk, der vil det bedste for vor klode og hinanden!
 
Vi arrangerer samkørsel via facebookgruppen "Permakultur i Norden".

Historien bag Nordisk Permakultur Festival

Den første Permakultur Festival i Norden så dagens lys i 2011. Festivallen opstod som følge af vores (Tycho & Karolines) brændende ønske om at fremme permakulturbevægelsen i Norden - at øge forståelsen og motivationen for en mere selvforsynende og helhedstænkende livsstil - og glæde.
Festivallen lod vi inspirere af lignende begivenheder i England, Australien og Europa. Vi mener muligheden for at møde spændende folk fra nær og fjern, der deler tanker og entusiasme, er alfa omega for en bæredygtig fremtid.

Folkdance workshop - wonderful! 

Nordisk Permakultur Festival har til formål at skabe den perfekte ramme for kreativ udveksling af bæredygtige løsninger for vor fælles fremtid via en aktiv deltagelse af både workshop-holdere og deltagere. Festivallen fungerer som en inspirations- og motivationsplatform for nordiske interessegrupper -og er åben for alle i alle aldre.
Intentionen er, at alle skal kunne være med. At skabe en platform, hvor vi kan dele erfaringer, visioner, livsstil og praktisk viden. Festivallen er baseret på frivillige kræfter – og arrangørerne vil få brug for alle de hjælpende hænder vi kan til fremtidige festivaller.
Kom og vær med!
 

Why a permaculture festival?

The Nordic Permaculture Festival intents to open up the field of sustainability to a broader public view with a hands-on as well as theoretical focus. The festival is an opportunity for participants from the different Nordic countries to gather and exchange information about sustainable solutions from their areas - both on a national and local level.

The festival took place for the first time in Denmark, 2011. The initiators and then organizers, Karoline Nolsø Aaen and Tycho Holcomb, were inspired by similar permaculture events around the world, and thought it suitable for the Nordic region to share an event such as a festival. Karoline and Tycho’s goal was to create a festival, allowing it to flow from one Nordic country to the other, while having skill sharing, story telling, fun and visions for a sustainable, integrated and holistic future across the borders. The goal is now being realized.
 
For everybody to join, for all to share experiences, visions, lifestyles, and practical knowledge, the festival is what you make it. The festival is based on volunteers – albeit we acknowledge that organizing an event of this magnitude does require financially supported time. The intention is for workshop holders to share their knowledge for free, join the festival at a reduced price to cover the food and other costs necessary, and simply enjoy being a part of a global movement. Regular participants are invited to help out where needed, to take responsibility, and maybe even offer a workshop if so enclined. Volunteers may pay for their food costs, but otherwise join to carry out tasks while having a good time. The festival hence needs all helpful hands to join for future festivals.
If you would like to volunteer, offer a workshop, or something else, don't hesitate to contact us through this home page, and join the mailing list. Join us!
