We believe in Non Violent Direct Action
We practice consensus decision making that encourages and respects pluralism of opinion.
We seek to minimise our impact on the earth and Refuse, Reuse, Reduce and Recycle.
We aim to use gender neutral language and behave with an awareness of gender issues. Sexual Harassment and verbal or physical violence towards others is not accepted.
We receive no government funding. GECO and our campaigns rely on our own fundraising and donations.
We advocate the development and adoption of a diversified regional economy for East Gippsland for example, Nature-based Eco-tourism.
We advocate ethical investments, and consumer awareness.
We support the struggles of indigenous people worldwide to maintain their cultures and land - Indigenous Solidarity
We strive towards environmental and social justice. Our community values diversity and harmony and encourages viable models for social change.
Yes, we like wood and use it to keep ourselves warm in winter. We see wood as a renewable resource. It's the Old Growth Forests and the irreplaceability of water, soil quality, and biodiversity that concerns us.
