Plan Africa is a network for connecting permaculture practitioners & sustainable farmers throughout Africa to share resources, raise discussions and collaborate towards a sustainable future. Launched at the International Permaculture Convergence in Malawi in November 2009, Plan Africa aims to be a forum for consciousness-raising across Africa, and to empower people engaged in parallel sustainable initiatives by linking them with one another, accelerating knowledge-transfer, skills development, and both conceptual and practical evolution of sustainable land use practices and paradigms in Africa. As an interactive and participatory body, Plan Africa seeks to be a launchpad for collaborative lobbying and fundraising for sustainable and progressive planning, policy and development for the African continent.
Afristar is a key partner in the development of Plan Africa, acting as a communications hub, serving to register members from all over the continent, providing administrative support for the network, and guiding the social process of the network’s growth.
