Dandelion Support Network Inc. was founded late in 2011 by two mothers who wanted to make a difference in their community. Importantly, the work undertaken by Dandelion fills a service gap in the community service industry and is built on a partnership model, working alongside social workers and case managers to support families.
Dandelion’s vision is that all babies and children have access to nursery items essential for their safety, well-being and development and we achieve this while reducing the environmental footprint of the community. As we do not receive any government funding, we rely on volunteers and the generosity of the community for donations to allow us to continue our work.
Throughout my life I endeavour to make a series of films that attempts to delve into the minds of the indigenous cultures world wide in order to broaden the minds of the western world in creating a world that is peaceful and sustainable for all.

In 2017 I am travelling around Australia with my partner to shoot the next film simply titled ONE DRUM II, for the moment. This is a totally self funded project, though any contributions will be greatly appreciated for the completion of the film. Though the film will be completely different from the first, it will feature deep spiritual context from both myself and the people that are interviewed along the way.

The Coral Sea borders the Great Barrier Reef and the island archipelagos of Melanesia, and contains marine ecosystems of exceptionally high quality and biodiversity. This region accommodates the last great reservoir of ultra-diverse coral reefs in the world, however it currently has insufficient marine protected areas to achieve robust conservation outcomes. Our aim is to raise awareness of the ecological and social value of the Coral Sea and the Eastern Coral Triangle and take a proactive role in its sustainable management.Marine reserves support local fisheries and safeguard biodiversity, but in this region, they can only be successful if they are initiated, administered and supported by the local communities. The "Sea Women of Melanesia" program selects intelligent and determined young Melanesian women and trains them in conservation theory, scuba diving and marine biology survey techniques so they have the skills to communicate the need for marine reserves to their local communities and can identify areas suitable for marine protected areas on their own coral reefs.The Coral Sea Foundation supports the Sea Women trainees in this work and helps the landowners to research and register their marine protected areas and provides humanitarian assistance by way of clean water infrastructure, medical care and education support in order to promote the participation of the community in the marine reserve process. Our grassroots approach has a proven track record of success, and the broad skill-set within our team and our experience working in the remote islands of Melanesia gives us a unique capability to deliver cost-effective results in this area of exceptionally high conservation value.

Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) was established more than 20 years ago because Australia has the worst mammal extinction rate in the world and a very high proportion of our surviving animals and plants (over 1,700 species) are listed as threatened with extinction.
“Business as usual” for conservation in Australia will mean additional extinctions. AWC is therefore developing and implementing a new model for conservation to reverse the decline in our wildlife.
Our strategy is simple:

Ocean Impact Organisation (OIO) has a mission to create an abundant and sustainable ocean through inspiration, innovation, leadership and good business. We exist to help people start, grow and invest in businesses that positively impact the ocean.
Why? We live on Planet Ocean. 70% of the earth's surface is covered by ocean and the aquatic wonderland beneath the sea contains vastly more habitable space than the terrestrial landmass populated by humans.
Planet Ocean regulates our climate; produces two thirds of the oxygen we breathe; fuels the water cycle; sustains the livelihoods and provides nourishment for nearly three billion people; is fundamental to diverse cultures; is essential to global transport; is critical to addressing climate change and is home to millions of marine species, many of which are yet to be studied by science. But Planet Ocean is in danger.
Launched by founders Nick Chiarelli and Tim Silverwood, OIO is Australia’s first ocean impact ecosystem and startup accelerator for entrepreneurs and businesses making a positive impact on the ocean.
OIO is a registered charity based in Sydney, Australia.

The Care Crew are given the authority to meet the demands of the customer without having to send the query to a superior for instruction.• Enhancing organizational learning and adaptability, because members of self-managed teams have the latitude to experiment with their work and to develop strategies that are uniquely suited to the tasks of daily care and support;• Enhancing employee’s commitment to the organization because self-managing teams offer wider participation in and ownership of the important organizational decisions

Mandurah Wildlife Rescue is a registered environmental charity which rehabilitates injured and orphaned wildlife back to the bush. Our more than 150 volunteers (we don't have paid staff) also undertake school and community education on wildlife protection and conservation.
After 11 years of operations in 2019, we will build an onsite regional education centre and commence certified training for wildlife carers and eco tourism events.

The story of the Hunter Wetlands Centre Australia is nothing less than inspirational. It is currently run entirely by volunteers and receives no funding from local, state or federal governments.Back in the mid 1980s what is now a vibrant wetland refuge was a dump in every sense of the word! This part of the Hunter estuary wetland system was bare, derelict and overgrown. A significant patch of wetland in Shortland had been converted to football fields and a clubhouse but subsequently abandoned. On the verge of becoming a Council rubbish dump it was saved by community action.Today, Hunter Wetlands Centre Australia is a vibrant wetland ecosystem bursting with life. The site is regarded as a wetland of national and international importance and the centre enjoys a growing reputation for excellence in wetland conservation, education and ecotourism.This remarkable transformation was due to the determination and persistence of the local community and some far-sighted organisations, who have joined forces to protect and restore this remarkable wetland for the benefit of all who depend on it… and those who simply enjoy it!.

It is our goal to gift six million solar lights to children living in energy poverty by 2030, to improve their education outcomes and bring environmental, health and economic benefits to their communities.
Energy poverty plunges 1.4 billion people into complete darkness, every night as they lack equal access to clean energy. They depend on primitive forms of energy like charcoal and firewood to ignite their way through the night. These forms of energy have a devastating impact on their health, well-being, economic stability, educational outcomes and the environment.
To date, we have gifted 100,000+ solar lights to children in 21 countries across the globe. We are currently working in countries such as: Tanzania, Dominican Republic, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Cambodia, India, and Madagascar. We also offer SolarBuddy's Indigenous Education Program within Australia.
What is our solution?SolarBuddy provides safe, reliable, effective, and innovative solar lights to children who don’t have access to electricity, empowering them to reach their full potential.
Our donor, corporate and education programs give our community the chance to transform lives through the gift of light while learning how innovative design solutions can help create a more sustainable world.
We have created various innovative programs combining learning with practical application – designed to build awareness and inspire action on the issue of energy poverty. All our work is aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
All funds raised go directly to purchasing SolarBuddy lights that go to communities living in energy poverty.

Rewilding Australia is linking Australia’s past with Australia’s future by restoring our ecosystems. Informed by science and Indigenous Ecological Knowledge, we are returning missing keystone species including quolls and devils. Quolls and devils play a significant role in regulating ecosystems – including introduced pest species, that damage our environment. By returning our quolls and devils, we might help a broad range of other important ecosystem engineer species, such as bandicoots, bettongs and potoroos.
Rewilding Australia supports the Australian Government’s Threatened Species Strategy by working with Government, ecologists, land managers, traditional owners and communities, to educate, protect and restore Australia’s unique ecosystems. We’re also committed to working with Australia’s best ecologists and researchers to investigate novel methods of improving the outlook for Australia’s ecosystems.
The Climate Council is Australia’s leading climate change communications organisation.
We provide authoritative, expert advice to the public on climate change, energy solutions and international action, based on the most up-to-date science available.
We’re made up of some of the country's leading climate scientists, energy, health and policy experts, as well as a dedicated team of staff, and a huge community of volunteers and supporters who underpin our work. As an independent voice on climate change, we get climate stories into the media, produce hard-hitting reports, call out misinformation as we see it and support Australia’s shift to a prosperous, renewably powered economy.
The Climate Council was founded in 2013 by tens of thousands of supporters, in Australia’s largest ever crowd-funding campaign, to create a new, independent and 100% community-funded organisation. Our work continues to be powered by our community whose generous support underpins our success. By supporting the Climate Council today, you will be part of the driving force behind the transition to a clean, renewably powered Australia.
No Meat May is a campaign and registered charity that challenges people to eliminate meat from their diets for 31 days, for 4 big reasons (health, environment, animals, and food security).
Launched in 2013 by a couple of passionate creatives wanting to do some good – No Meat May started with thirty of their friends all giving up meat for the month of May. Many of whom are now active contributors and part of the No Meat May team.
With participation more than doubling year on year, No Meat May is now a global campaign experiencing exponential growth, with thousands of new recruits participating each year. And surveys confirming 94% of people reduce or eliminate meat permanently after participating - with one in three reporting a life-changing experience.
We recognise that people change incrementally, over time - and provide a safe stepping stone, evidence based information and support for that bold first step. And we work hard to make people feel part of a growing global community.
