Recharge Kuranda Community Transition Centre

Australia

 

Recharge Kuranda is an Transition Umbrella born for the wider Region of Far North Queensland to facilitate a physical location, meeting place and focal point for transition in Far North Queensland

 The Recharge hub itself is covered in its running cost by the community who gladly support their local community Farmers Market, which is brought about through the locally operating Social Enterprise; RealFood Network and that facilitates an amazing variety of workshops, events, activities, networks’ representation, information sharing and community activation. Recharge Kuranda is set out to Re ignite Community Spirit.

The hub and its core members have facilitated various Transition FNQ meetings, engaged in Council Community Planning workshops and private sessions, delivered lectures to local students during their Field Study on Sustainability for the Tablelands region and they regularly holds  events or Movies that Matter that all relate back to Transition and being the change.
