  1. John and Yvonne Hackwell Says:

    Hello Oystein
    Very interesting to read your profile.
    Since returning to Australia in 1985, Yvonne and I have been working in Indigenous Community Development among Australia’s semi-nomadic Aboriginals in the remote regions of Australia, including the Pilbara and the Great Sandy Desert.
    We started out running administering remote Indigenous communities and managing community health services before we moved more into housing, especially mud brick housing.
    For the past six years we have been working in the corporate sector. Currently, we are retained by a Swiss company called HOLCIM to oversee their Indigenous Community Relations around the country.
    Best wishes
    John and Yvonne Hackwell
