Community

Cassinia Environmental realised that the protection and rehabilitation of the environment, although critical, is only half of the equation to ensure we create a healthy planet. 

It is just as important to identify and be part of the solution for social issues which is being achieved by Cassinia Community through the following projects.

Learning for Life

There has been a global focus on increasing the completion rates of primary and secondary education in developing countries which has been relatively successful. This is essential work; however, it doesn’t necessarily help raise the level of university students and qualified professionals.
By 2030 Africa is forecast to have 42% of the global youth population. Combining this with a region such as Latin America they quickly add up to a majority of the world’s youth population.


We ask the question “what if these groups do not have access to further education and associated careers?”.

The project focusses on regional areas where there is a particularly acute shortage of properties.

The Human Dignity Project
Everyone deserves to live with dignity, for some people this is stripped away when they are forced to flee to camps and eventually to foreign countries. The Human Dignity Project, working with Community Refugee Sponsorship Australia, facilitates community support groups to welcome and help integrate families and individuals into Australian communities, providing a welcoming to restore their dignity.

Community Reconciliation
Inspired by Paul Dettmann’s visit to the National Civil Rights Museum which made a profound impact on him and a deeper understanding of the issue. After which Paul asked the question “Why isn’t there something like this in Australia”.
This has led to a project that is searching for a location and suitable structure to present the full story of both sides. Australian First Peoples and non-indigenous Australians, the coming together of two cultures, the trials and successes. Many of which most Australians are unaware of.
