Ego Lemos is in Melbourne to receive his Master of Arts (Community Development) from Victoria University. He has just concluded the second PermaScout camp in history bringing young people from every corner of Timor Leste for a week of Permaculture workshops, networking and music making, a remarkable event which is attracting the attention of the President. Ego is an internationally recognised Permaculture practitioner and teacher. As Timor Leste’s most famous singer-songwriter he is about to perform at a festival in Germany organised by his recording company, Skinnyfish.
