This week our team got together to recharge the batteries and set the scene for our next year or two of work.

We had great speakers lined up for our staff including Hamish White from NOW. (on motivation and buzz), Adele Frewin from Weleda (on social responsibility), and Atlantic rower and South Pole explorer Kevin Biggar who was inspirational, thought provoking and entertaining all at once.

We also had some practical team challenges, including our own version of The Block, where staff were challenged to upcycle a range of waste materials into a portable, one-person waterproof shelter.

We’re really interested in how waste materials can be used for temporary or emergency shelters, and will be taking a closer look at this area in future.
