South East Asian Bioregional Permaculture Convergence 2012 19-22 
November 2012, Hong Kong

Food, Water, Energy against a background of Climate Change is the theme 
of the first SE Asian Bioregional Permaculture Convergence.

WELCOME to this website and more importantly to the South East Asian 
first Bioregional Convergence.

Welcome to the team at Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden who made it 
happen and did it without conflict and with elegant style.

But most of all WELCOME to all of you who intend to come to the 
convergence to add your knowledge, skills and goodwill.

This is an important convergence. SE Asia is a distinct region. It has 
some of the world’s largest cities, and, largest rural populations. It 
grows enormous amount of food from thousand year old traditional means 
to the most modern industrial agriculture. People travel by helicopters 
and by buffalo carts. It has mountains, plains and huge deltas – a 
multitude of languages, religions and cultures.

Everything from the past, and to the last second of the present, co-exists.

 >From a permaculture viewpoint, and starting with a Permaculture 
Festival (open to all ‘green’ people), this convergence lays down a 
marker for the region in speakers, in participants and in its examples.

The convergence is probably the first to include Asian meditation as a 
post-convergence “excursion”. It includes speakers from across the 
region, staying largely within its own boundaries.

Its impact will be scattered and sometimes unknowable. After this 
convergence and long after people have returned home, we expect 
permaculture to emerge from many unlikely places, and perhaps, unlikely 
people. By large means and small, this convergence will contribute to a 
change in the world and for the word.

A warm Asian welcome awaits you…
