June & July 2015
CERES Global is privileged to run two trips to the remote Homeland Community of Mäpuru in East Arnhem Land, Australia. The trips run each year providing the opportunity to learn about Yolngu culture from Indigenous leaders who are passing on their traditional skills and knowledge in basket weaving and bush survival skills.
We're heading back to Timor in May 2015, where we'll spend time in Dili, Aileu, and on Au'tauro island. Engaging youth & community groups, environmental & social groups, building friendships and working together to meet local challenges. We will establish a demonstration permaculture and organic farming plot to diversify farming techniques to reduce malnutrition during the hungry months.
CERES Global are heading back to Cuba in April 2015 for what will be another amazing 3 week journey. Focusing on Cuba's incredible sustainability measures in a low oil economy, we'll spend time in Havana learning about urban farming techniques, in Sancti Spitius on organiponicos, and in Cienfuegos working on a project to celebrate Cuba's sustainability.
LaTrobe University and CERES Global are heading to Samoa! We recently hosted the Matalasi Samoan Dance Group in Melbourne and now we're heading out in to the Pacific to learn about Samoan life. The group had a wonderful time in Australia and are looking forward to hosting us, where we'll visit village communities as well as community environmental & social organisations.
