A plan that will allow people, anywhere in the world to transform plastic waste into valuable things.

The world is submerged with plastic, from the heights of Himalayas to the depths of the Atlantic ocean we have tons of toxic plastic laying around

Whether we like it or not, plastic is our inherited toxic legacy. Let’s use it as a resource to create new value and social innovation.
Join the revolution. Start building!

Permablitz (noun): An informal gathering involving a day on which a group of at least two people come together to achieve the following:

  • create or add to edible gardens where someone lives
  • share skills related to permaculture and sustainable living
  • build community networks
  • have fun

Permablitzes are free events, open to the public, with free workshops, shared food, where you get some exercise and have a wonderful time.  To be defined as a permablitz each event must also be preceded by a permaculture design by a designer with a Permaculture Design Certificate.  The network runs on reciprocity, and in order to qualify for a permablitz you usually need to come to some first, although there can be exceptions in this case.  We’ll explain more about all these ideas below.

Project Australia >> Start, scale and sustain community projects

Harnessed fully, there are more talents and resources within any small group of passionate citizens than are actually needed to manifest deep social change.

Project Australia is a not-for-profit organisation helping people start, scale and sustain community projects across 12 theme areas. We provide inspiration, resources, processes and advice to help people put their ideas into action.

We are a progressive social enterprise, free from political or religious influence, founded in 2006 by a young social innovator, Donnie Maclurcan. Any profits we make go back into the services we deliver. We have grown thanks to unconditional donations, fundraising events, merchandise sales, revenue from our youth speakers’ bureau and the hard work of more than 200 volunteers since we began. Our budget for 2012-13 is $30,000.

Our team currently includes a one-day per week Executive Director, ten volunteers and five committee members. We operate out of Sydney, but our team and work is national.
