Founded in 2016, the Foundation for Green Future Australia is a small Australian community of restoration professionals that includes researchers, practitioners, decision-makers, and community leaders from Australia and Asia. FOGA ( Foundation For Green Future Australia) members are actively engaged in repairing of ecologically sensitive areas and recovery of degraded ecosystems utilising a broad array of experience and its knowledge sets.
Drawing from this diverse expertise, FOGA works at the international, national and regional levels. Partnering with local city councils, government agencies, semi-government organisations and the private sector allows the advancement of science and practice of ecological restoration, for the benefit of biodiversity, complex ecosystems, and human society. The organisation provides a robust and dynamic platform through which we foster collaborations, training, knowledge sharing, networking and research among the many actors and interests that it represents.
Every business has a beginning. In last 11 years, our team has been working in the environmental industry, with different team members brought on for their specific skill set adding to the team. We have done work not only in restoration but also in sustainable agriculture, production of fruits and vegetables, forestry, education and training, commerce and accounting, and building and architecture. We have seen and experienced lots of practices that can not be suitable to provide a sustainable outcome to our society. In the past few years, we started exploring ways to implement specific practices in same fields that can help the environment in its true sense. That combined thinking led us to establish a group of like minded people who are determined to change and establish true practices in the industry. The core objective is to give back to the environment and community from what we have learned to date in terms of forming a Not For Profit Organisation.
Ecological restoration has become a fundamental component of conservation and sustainable development programs throughout the world. Through the virtue of its inherent capacity to provide people with the opportunity to not only repair ecological damage, but also improve human livelihood and condition. Our vision at FOGA is to integrate this virtue back into society.
Across the globe, centuries of unsustainable activities have damaged the terrestrial and aquatic environments that underpin our economies and societies and give rise to biodiversity. Foundation for Green Future Australia is dedicated to reversing this degradation and restoring the earth for the benefit of human society and mother nature.
