We have the opportunity to transition our economy for inclusivity, reconciliation, regeneration and reciprocity.
"Getting everyone together from unexpected places to take up the challenge, our collective challenge, is really essential. The pandemic has shown us that we do actually have the capacity to collectively gather around something”.
As CEO of Small Giants Academy, Mele-Ane Havea’s work is decisively around a central purpose of heralding a new way. The Small Giants Academy and the other Family Office businesses within Small Giants, including the Impact Investment Group, have a central purpose – to lead our communities toward empathy and the next economy.
“When we talk about the next economy, we look at the root meaning of the word economy, which is household or home management. The home being our planet, our collective home. And when we imagine the next economy we are talking about a different way of managing ourselves, our resources and our shared home, in a way that is regenerative, and inclusive, and sustainable”.
Small Giants family office includes impact investments in regenerative agriculture, regenerative aquaculture, renewable energy, and a bigger role in educating others about how they can move capital for a better future for all.
“More and more I see myself looking backwards to look forward, and in doing so I am finding myself drawing on my own indigenous culture and that of Australia’s First Nations, which is essential if we are to heal and build a future that is prosperous for all Australians, we have the opportunity to transition our economy for inclusivity, reconciliation, regeneration and reciprocity”.
