Using Design Thinking and Strategic Foresight, Nue21 helps organisations to think and act with curiosity, courage and creativity, and provide the skills to create exciting solutions that drive change. An impressive client list includes big hitters such as TAC, Monash University and IXL, and their consulting services pillars include agility training, innovation consulting & strategy, adaptive leadership consulting, and organisation design & development consulting.

Recently we planted 40 trees on their behalf when they raised funds during their Innovation Unleashed event. The trees were planted by Northern Bendigo Landcare (NBLG) who held their annual National Tree Day event at the Huntly Streamside Reserve, in Bendigo. The volunteers planted native species alongside the creek. This site had been damaged in the past due to gold mining and grazing.

Thank you Neu21 for coming up with this initiative for your event. Here’s the links to their trees from, 201820192021 and trees from earlier in 2022. Taking their tally of trees to 1,840! A Neu21 forest!
