Get skilled up, fired up and ready to go!
At Activate, you’ll connect with other people from your community who care about protecting our living world, hear ACF’s strategy to win, and learn the skills you need to make lasting change locally and nation-wide.
The last 12 months have been massive for people power. Along with our friends and allies, ACF Community members came together and made climate damage a defining issue of the federal election. We knocked on thousands of doors, had tens of thousands of conversations, held events, met with decision makers, and built strong community bonds.
But the climate and extinction crisis was never going to end on election day, no matter what the result. Our democracy works when we actively participate in it. We’re building a movement of people, coordinated, passionate, pushing forward together, all over Australia - and it’s time to keep building!
Is this training for me?
Have you jumped on board and got to work on this issue for the first time in the last year?
Are you part of a local ACF Community group and keen to skill up?
Have you been cheering from the sidelines, passionate about our climate and nature crisis but not sure how to get involved?
If you answered ‘yes!’ to any of the above, join us at Activate!
Across Australia, 28 powerful ACF Community groups are working hard to build people power, change the story and fix the system. Come to Activate to learn how to effectively contribute to, join, or start a new local group.
EARLY BIRD PRICE: Ticket cost is $30 to cover our venue hire and catering costs. It's important that cost is not a barrier to participation, so please get in touch if you'd like a free ticket.
What will happen at Activate Training Summit:

Lunch, snacks, and lots of stories!
Together, we’re building powerful, organised communities to create long-term change. We’re taking on the big, structural challenges – the laws, policies, institutions, decisions and practices – to create a system that does right by people and nature. Come to Activate and together we’ll walk out energised, skilled and connected with others, ready to be part of powerful national campaigns and to run local campaigns of our own.
Not convinced? Last year we held a similar training and launched 4 local groups across Brisbane. Three months after the training, we asked participants what had changed for them – here’s what they said:
"I don’t feel powerless anymore – not alone."
"Having the courage to step into places I never thought I’d step into."
"Realising that people power works!"
"Moving from feeling overwhelmed and fearful to motivated and hopeful!"
"Meeting like-minded people, seeing the resolve and determination they have and knowing that we have strength in numbers."
"A massive boost to my confidence that I can do this. The easy to understand skills that I now have. The network that I have built out of the really interesting, diverse and skilled people, both ACF staff and the other attendees."
