The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the global Permaculture Movement are clearly, while not perfectly aligned, share similar values, visions and goals. Both emphasise the importance of restoring and regenerating landscapes, oceans, forests, climate, quality of life, and achieving justice and equity for all.

A group of experienced permaculturalists from the USA, Australia, Malaysia and Europe, who saw the benefits of a formal relationship between permaculture and the UN published a press release in 2021 to propose a working partnership between the two movements. By working together, we can scale
up the restoration of Earth’s ecosystems and societies, while mitigating human-created climate crises.

We encourage as many of you as possible to register your project to demonstrate the huge range and length of time permaculture projects have been around, nearly 40 years, long before the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were thought of. 

We have put together this  guide to help with your registration.
