Jacqui Bell 

An Architect by background, Jacqui draws on over 15 years of experience working in the private and for-purpose sectors in Australia and South-East Asia, across the fields of sustainable built environments, social innovation, capacity building, community development, organisational and enterprise development, climate resilient development and disaster resilience. She has held leadership and management roles at Harmer Architecture, GHD Design and Engineering, Engineers without Borders Australia, Kindred Spirits Enterprises and the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR). She has also acted as an independent consultant and project lead on several government and not-for-profit sector initiatives that seek to create social and environmental impact and strengthen the resilience and adaptive capacity of communities.

Jacqui is passionate about creating powerful collaborations and mobilising people to use their unique skills, knowledge, resources and networks to tackle complex challenges and create positive change.

We work with communities, governments and industry to build regional economies that are climate safe, regenerative and socially just.

We rely on contributions from generous foundations and individuals to do what we do. If you like to contribute to a fair and resilient Australia, support our work today.
