She also co-runs “Love Amazonia”, a fair trade project supporting Indigenous women artists in the state of Acre in Brazil and is a part of team Jiboiana during COP25 – organising events for a group of 5 Indigenous leaders and activists.

Georgina has gained experience sitting in traditional ceremonies with indigenous people of the rainforest and has connected deeply with the plant medicines and music of these sacred traditions. She has helped to co-facilitate ceremonies with friend and kambo practitioner Maya Medvesek and has fundraised for the Huni Kuin in Brazil using only ethical Fair Trade tools direct from their friends in the rainforest.
