Since the year 2000 Cultivate have held Convergence, Ireland’s longest running sustainable living festival. This regular series of events have explored issues around community resilience, sustainability and how we transition to a society that works for all.
Cultivate and our partners, WeCreate Workspace and the P2P Foundation are delighted to invite you to the 19th Convergence that brings together cooperative advocates, community activists, and commons animators to share perspectives and ideas on the question:
“How can a commons-based collaborative economy strengthen the resilience of our communities?”

TV Presenter Duncan Stewart will kick start a morning of talks and ‘life stories’ on how the green economy can create more jobs and help North West communities becoming more self-reliant. The event will talk to those who have made, or are in the process of making, new careers and businesses within the green economy.
John Perry TD, Minister for Small Businesses, will deliver the end note address after the morning of talks and presentations on sustainable communities.
