A diverse group of leaders in the fields of regenerative design, social enterprise and circular economy recently came together to discuss opportunities for Fields of Healing 2018 to be a showcase for “ecological healing”,  both locally and globally.

Convened by Fields of Healing Community Director Adam Collett and 96 Bangalow’s Blair Beattie, the gathering brought together a unique cross-section of expertise and vision, with the discussion generating a series of creative ecological projects for the group to collectively move forward in alignment with the November event.

“The Northern Rivers is home to an incredible amount of ecological innovation. Fields of Healing is a unique opportunity to showcase the solutions emerging within our community to a global audience; while creating a space to learn from each other, particularly this remarkable collective of Indigenous Elders from around the world.

 “We have a chance to leave a legacy here, a collective vision with tangible outcomes that help to build pathways towards ecological healing both in our region and around the world,” Mr Collett said.

When asked “What does ecological healing mean to you?” the group came to appreciate the importance of the question as much as the answer, looking forward to Fields of Healing 2018 as an opportunity to engage people of many nations and all walks of life in an exploration of the topic.

If you are interested in joining the conversation and sharing your ideas and emerging projects with the group and others, please join us at Fields of Healing Byron Bay on the 24th & 25th of November at North Byron Parklands.
