We could spend a lot of time ranting about the inadequacies of COP21, but I am happy to see that permaculture voices have taken the scientifically correct high road to creating planetary solutions.

This has got me thinking about a worldwide yearly conference of permaculture people that includes an online platform like this one for people to submit policy problems and cultural changes for suggestion and action.

We could do a lot of regional action based on permaculture activity, but include the voices of the planet and pool our resources like never before to act locally to solve specific problems that permaculture addresses. I see people doing this in the creation of large farms and forums like this one.

Would anyone be interested in a yearly climate related event?

I am sure many of us could use help in reaching local people and governments to bring our solutions to the dirt.

Some examples could include media packets, door to door campaigns, how to organize civil societies, motivating people to live sustainable lives through permaculture, local sanitation solutions, etc.

For example, I am working on a separate project for Marine Litter Reduction that includes collecting some of the trash laying all over Africa. People are actually cursing at me because only by my act of collecting trash is inspiring kids to help me. Parents have an attitude that they don't want their kids to work in farming or sanitation and would rather starve and live in their own trash. The COPermaculture could address third world issues by bringing education local solutions that make those industries more attractive.
