" I am very excited to be in the Millennium Fellowship, and the change to meet like-minded youth from around the world. I believe that rebuilding destroyed business after the Australian bush fires can be done effectively with community capital, and the Millennium Fellow represents an opportunity to pursue this passion.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Binna Burra Equity Crowdfund
Australia faced its worst bushfire season in 2019-20 due to the impact of global warming which resulted in the devastating destruction of many homes and businesses, including the Binna Burra Mountain Lodge in the Gold Coast hinterland. The Lodge is a heritage-listed ecolodge and social enterprise supporting rainforest conservation since its establishment 86 years ago and has planned to build a centre for climate change research, facilitating the SDG 13 - Climate Action. The project aim is to secure funds to rebuild the main lodge by running an equity crowdfund campaign with a team of volunteers through a foundation connected to Binna Burra. During the fellowship, the team will create and distribute an expression of interest survey.
