Wet Tropics Management Authority (WTMA) held the Rainforest Aboriginal People’s Forum, 23-25 July 2021 where Jumbun representatives, Nicole Huxley, Uncle Abe and Aunty Phyllis attended. Jumbun were invited to not only attend the conference but also to have a stall to share about their work to transition to a regenerative resilient community and to showcase the ecovillage design framework and cards.
Nicole printed stand up banners with all the areas of regeneration and principles and displayed the GEN Ecovillage Cards packs at the table, and facilitated many conversations about ecovillage transition and design at the conference, with other rainforest Aboriginal communities, NGOs and government bodies.
Nicole is stepping up as a GEN Ambassador and hopes to facilitate ecovillage workshops with other Aboriginal communities in Queensland. Together with GEN Australia, she hopes that many more indigenous communities can transition to be regenerative communities, becoming self-reliant and creating abundant pathways for future generations.
