The Woven Rivers Charitable Trust is the umbrella governance body responsible for stewarding the Socio-Ecological Learning Environment. The Trust will fulfill its legal and economic obligations, act as the primary oversight body for the organisation as a whole, and ensure responsible and accountable decision making within the organisation.
The Trust will be populated by Trustees with diverse experience in large-scale project management, who are socio-ecologically aware and committed to working toward organisational models that are more appropriate for the changing socio-cultural context of our time.
