We are currently looking for members to join our wellbeing and regenerative culture team.
Wellbeing is a vital aspect of the movement, so whatever time you can give would be a real help.
Below is the mandate for the wellbeing group, which should give you a rough idea of what’s invovled.
No experience is necessary — you can start as soon as you’re ready.
