Treecreate was founded by Dr Tracey M Benson in 2019 as a means to build connections between creativity, wellbeing, grass roots action and education around environmental restoration and reforestation.
At Treecreate, we believe that by working together we can achieve our goals, which is why we support the UN Decade of Restoration and the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals
Tracey mentors across a range of contexts:
- 2019-2020 InnovationACT Mentor
- 2009-2012 Graduate Mentor, Department of Environment and Water Resources + Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency
- 2018 – current PhD Advisor – students at QUT, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology and TransArt Institute.
Treecreate works to bring together people from different places and knowledges to bring about greater awareness as well as ‘on the ground’ actions for holistic ecosystem wellbeing
Tracey has that rare combination of organisational skills, care for the planet, care for people – an extraordinary network -so nurturing and knowledgeable on all levels from bringing the amazing speakers together to keeping us all in touch with what was going on, to putting out spot fires along the way.
