With our:





Rethink inspires others to action, and to support their resilience and sustainability through demonstration and education (at all levels).

We inspire conversations through workshops, encouraging reflection and action that will help people rethink their consumption, their connection with nature and demonstrate sustainability. This is to enable and foster prevention of waste, through reuse as much as possible. We offer a workshop and education series and also collaborate with research institutions.
