Yes, Crowdcast automatically records all broadcasts. They will be available to view from around 1hr after the end of each evening’s show. Follow the same links as for live viewing which will be sent to you after signing up.
Unfortunately, Open Space sessions are not being broadcast via Crowdcast so any recordings will be down to the individual event organisers.
Please note, the vast majority of the content at EUPC21 will be in English.
We are translating the core text of this website into Spanish, German and French. These plus Portuguese are the core languages we will be able to offer some support with during the Convergence. The details of this are being worked out but include language support rooms in Kumospace (see below) and translated subtitles for pre-recorded film content.
Other elements of our comms and programme may have translations in Dutch, Russian and Italian subject to support being available.
We will use Kumospace to create social areas for the EUPC 2021. There will be a variety of rooms in use for this purpose. Some rooms will be themed around language where those who speak specific languages can go for support or for socialising. There will also be rooms for viewing films, meeting authors/speakers and more.
Volunteers will be on hand each day from

We hope that the EUPC 21 will deliver a financial surplus that can be used to support the further development of a coherent and effective European Permaculture Network (EUPN).
Though the EUPN is not a formal body, money will be held by a suitable non-profit organisation for use by the network. It is hoped that some of this money will go directly to supporting the development of permaculture bodies in countries where this is in it’s infancy or not yet begun. Other surplus will go into better mapping the network, building an open source database of permaculture projects and tools, and ensuring that the momentum built by this EUPC is not lost.
Essentially, buying a ticket for this event will support the growth and development of permaculture across the continent.
You can sign up for a bursary to the event here. We are focusing primarily on young participants and those from less wealthy European countries, or places where there is not yet a strong permaculture community.
We are taking applications until 26th September 2021. Please note, the majority of content at #EUPC21 is being curated by members of our programming circle with help from allies across the continent.
Our Open Space programme is available for workshops, discussions and similar content that does not make it
