The value of learning emerges when the leaders of a region take the posture of a student. When we study our local assets we mesure our capacity to bring solutions that heal and restore. We start with what we have.
When we take individual responsibility for the pain and brokenness of our streets, suburbs and cities we build personal credibility. At Hills Collective we ask ourselves and leader: "What are we - personally - doing to make a difference?" We see our suburbs as a reflection of ourselves.
People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. At Hills Collective we aim to build organisational credibility through initiatives we act out.

Whether we exist for the purpose of making profit with social gain or social gain with the benefit of profit we aim to enrich our streets, communities and suburbs. We exist to bring value to our environment. To create spaces of life. Nature, people and spaces need to benefit from our collective presence. We aim to be a fountain to society instead of a drain on society.
