Extreme bushfires, a global health pandemic and an escalating economic crisis, have show us just how dependent we are on our climate and nature’s infrastructure.

As we face these challenges, communities here in Australia and around the world are campaigning to build back better with recovery plans that are good for people and the planet. 

Join our two-day training on Saturday 27 March – Sunday 28 March at Activate QLD to connect with others and get skilled up. 

What: Activate QLD, two day training in Brisbane
When: 
Saturday 27 March, 9am - 5pm, and Sunday 28 March, 9am - 5pm
Where: 
Gambaro Room (13th floor), Common Ground Queensland, 15 Hope Street, South Brisbane
Cost: 
$30 to cover venue hire and catering. We don’t want cost to be a barrier to you participating, so please get in touch by emailing me at [email protected] if you require a free ticket. 

When you attend Activate, you will:

  • Connect with like-minded people and learn from each other.
  • Learn about ACF’s theory of change to build people power, change the story and fix the system – and how local groups fit into it and can help win big national campaigns.

ACF staff Matt Vaughan & Jyoti Jude Menon will train you in:

  • How to run a local group with clear and effective roles to support each other, avoid burnout, create good strategy, and have fun!
  • How to have powerful and effective conversations.
  • How to build local power to grow our national movement for change.

We’ll share:

  • Resources and connections to help you move forward.
  • Lunch, snacks, and lots of stories!

Come to Activate and you’ll walk out energised, skilled and connected with others, ready to be part of a powerful local group engaging in national campaigns and running local campaigns of your own.

Tickets
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.

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 solving the climate and extinction crisis but not sure how to get involved?

If you answered ‘yes!’ to any of the above, join us at Activate!

Across Australia, over 40 powerful ACF Community groups are working hard to build people power, change the dominant story of people versus nature, and fix the systems that are destroying life.

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.
