Sustainability alone will not be able to reverse the damage made by human activities in the last centuries on our natural and human systems on Earth. Regenerative and ecological design is an expeditious approach that can repair this damage and give back to these life-supporting systems. Traditional ecological knowledge is the first step in this regeneration journey that can have a positive social and environmental impact.

This event aims to educate and empower everyone with traditional ecological knowledge and regenerative tools to care for country.

The Garden Building on Bowen Street is still considered part of RMIT Building 10 but it is mostly separate with stair and elevator access from Bowen Street (Level 4) and access to the Terrace from the Main Building (Level 7).

Dominique has been working at the leading edge of Greenfleet design and development for over 25 years.
