Our values

We believe our future depends on working together

Overview

There are a growing number of small organisations across the globe with shared values. These organisations are multi-focal, exploring the interconnected themes of climate change, social and environmental justice, technology, arts, science, spirit and Indigenous knowledge.

Many of these organisations are already ‘networked’ with each other, working in cooperation to maximise their reach and capability. Each organisation has its specific strengths, usually related to its location and its existing partnerships. Many of these strengths could be scaled and leveraged for the benefit of all parties.

By working in partnership with key organisations and individuals, Treecreate’s objectives are to develop collaborative projects and events on interconnected themes and to support like-minded organisations achieve their communications and outreach goals.

In support of Black Lives Matter

We at Treecreate fully support the Black Lives Matter movement in all its forms across the globe. We believe that it is time to create new systems of inclusion, empowerment and connection through acknowledging the past, truth telling and ally-ship.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of Country throughout Australia and honour their continuing connection to land, water, culture and community. We pay our respects to all Elders past, present and emerging. We also acknowledge the Elders of the Ngunnawal and Ngambri peoples, on whose land we live and work. We pay our respects to all First Nations peoples and acknowledge their deep knowledge of the earth.
