A better future is not only possible, but necessary, and we must build it together. Come to Activate Melbourne to connect with others and learn how.
Right now, we are being thrown into climate and environmental chaos, caused by big coal and nature-wrecking corporations, the billionaires who profit from them and the politicians they have bought.
Enough is enough. It’s time to take back power, and work together to create a world that’s good for everyone and every living thing.
So join us on the weekend of March 21-22 for some training and community organising at Activate Melbourne! The training will run from 9am-5pm both days.
At Activate, you’ll connect with other people from your community who care about protecting our living world, and learn the skills you need to make lasting change both locally and nation-wide.
What will happen at Activate:
ACF staff Michael Pulsford & Maggie Riddington will train you in:
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.
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. Tickets are available at this EventBrite link.
If you answered ‘yes!’ to any of the above, join us at Activate!
Across Australia, 31 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.
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 huge issue in 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 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!
Need more convincing? Last August we held this training in Melbourne and Brisbane and participants said the following:
"Inspiring, action-oriented, enjoyable 2 day training! Dynamic and generous facilitators who engaged us all the way along. Thanks for the fun & learning"
"Trainers provide a positive, safe, friendly environment for like-minded people to get together and learn how to make a difference in the world"
"ACF allows me to develop and express my passion for the environment and contribute to positive environmental actions within a supportive community"

Together, let’s show up, speak out, and act for a world where our forests, rivers, people and wildlife thrive.
