About Rework Network - designing a sustainable future
Rework Network cover
Mission Rework Network is a social enterprise using enterprise to turn waste into opportunity and value for our community.
Description Rework Network was born out of frustration with an existing reality which just didn't make sense to me any more. We'd fallen behind and we were persisting with outdated models of life which I just couldn't embrace.

I was witnessing over consumption, excessive waste, inefficiency and bad design and the degradation of our environment. I saw charities, schools and community groups persisting with outdated and tired funding models, to get the money they needed to make a difference in our communities. Our increasing social problems weren't going away and less and less people were able to participate in the economy.

I wondered if our excessive waste problem, could be the key to reducing our social problems and provide a fresh approach to generating income for the community. A place where we could collectively come together to solve our problems, share with, and learn from, each other, in an environmentally sustainable way.

I could see a new reality. A design lead, creative and innovative reality. A social enterprise that uses landfill destined items and makes them available for creative reuse with profits being injected back into the community. A place where waste could be used like currency and where there would be a circular flow of resources and a more equal share in the economy.

Rework Network's vision of the future is where sustainable practice is second nature, creativity is accessible and connected communities commonplace.

Join us on this wonderful journey, creating a new reality, one we design, for a sustainable future for everyone.
