CiP (Children in Permaculture) is an innovative project and growing network of international cooperation bringing together educators from different organisations, educational settings and countries to cross-fertilise, share and synthesise ideas.
The project has developed, tested, adapted and implemented best practices in engaging children in permaculture through creating various resources which you can find in the CiP resources menu. CiP is now delivering high quality training and consultancy services across Europe.
The project has already published a book as a guide to working with children and permaculture in different settings. For more information see the website: Children in Permaculture
Permaculture is now in the national primary schools curriculum in Timor Leste (East Timor), and in the national secondary school agriculture curriculum in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland). In Timor Leste this requires each school to have a permaculture garden. IPEN case studies are planned on both these inspiring examples – and in the meantime here’s a great article about it:
And you can find out about Guba Permaculture Training Centre in Eswatini, who’s work with schools led to permaculture being included in the national secondary school curriculum.
Malawi Schools Permaculture Clubs is another inspiring example.
