Join us on Friday 25th at 6pm to celebrate the beginning of JCJ’s 10th year anniversary. We have brought in some exciting guest speakers!
It is a very exciting time for JCJ because it was 10 years ago that our founders Kanchana and Jim met and conceived the organisation!
To celebrate this anniversary, we have organised a very special line-up for our AGM that reflects the past, present and future of JCJ.
Director of Tulele Peisa, a community-based organisation in Bougainville that is helping set up sustainable livelihoods for Carteret Islander climate refugees. Ursula speaks all over the world about the Carteret Islands and is in high demand, so we are very grateful she has made the time to speak to us.
