RSA Oceania

RSA Oceania

A growing community of Fellows actively working to drive social change in Australasia, Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia.

Our current work is focused around the Regenerative Futures programme, which aims to create a future where humans thrive as part of the Earth’s ecology.
