Supporting a local organisation in building
community resilience and environmental sustainability
Assisting a local organisation in strategy development and capacity building to strengthen community resilience, social inclusion and environmental sustainability.

Co-designing cultural change strategies for the the Age Of Humans
InCollaboration has been a contributor and participant to Anthropocene Transitions, which undertakes inquiry and design of strategies for cultural change. The Anthropocene (Age of Humans) indicates we have arrived at a new era, no longer predictably conducive for human development. The era has been brought on by humans' unsustainable use of earth's resources and recognises that humans beings are now the greatest driver of planetary change.
