The deadline is approaching for applications for this year’s ILP in Lucca (28 July to 8th August) and as there are still some places left we would like to ask you to help us to pass on information about the programme to those in your work, education, community or other networks who you think may be interested.
We would ask that you think of the two or three best suited people (18-35) and to contact them directly (call them, email/ facebook them) telling them why you think the ILP would be of interest to them, and send them to this page on our website for more information. We really appreciate your continued support.

Experiencing Permaculture through the heart, presents a unique opportunity to combine class room permaculture learning with "hands-on" experience, complementing the active physical engagement with the soil with an inner attitude of loving alignment with the earth.

WYSE alumnus and Ambassador Sarah Kiggundu holds active interests in issues around Education, the United Nations and has published articles on water distribution in Southern Africa.At the start of the new millenium, the United Nations published eight Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) to be achieved by 2015. Target 7c is "to halve, by 2015, the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation". Sarah's article about access to water in a South African context looks at reconciling the differences between environmental and economic needs for water and considers water as a commodity or a basic human right.
In Sarah's 2012 review of the trans-boundary issues of water / sanitisation in the border of Namibia and Angola, she provides an overview of the first phase of the Kunene trans-boundary water supply and sanitation scheme. The article summarises the governing water and sanitisation legislation, for both Namibia and Angola, and examines the socio-economic impacts assessed.
