Thank you and more follow-up
We filmed the report backs on the projects. These will be on the RHoK 1.0 Sydney Youtube in the next couple of days.
Lastly, we had so much fun and I feel very happy that folks attending from all over Australia (Brisbane, Newcastle, Canberra, and Sydney) and New Zealand as well as two Canadians and one US volunteer. I firmly believe that the community in AU/NZ will continue.
We are very proud of all the collaboration and awesomeness of our efforts. I personally am quite honoured to have met each of the attendees and to have shared this experience with them.
Thank you to Second Muse, the World Bank, RHoK and Crisis Commons for giving us all this opportunity, and to the CIE/ASB/UNSW for the spectacular venue, logistical support and beautiful sunrises/sets.
