From the 2019 summer bushfires to a global pandemic, we are being thrown into climate and environmental crises, caused by big nature-wrecking corporations, the billionaires who profit from them and the politicians they have bought.
But as we face these difficult challenges, we are also presented with huge opportunities to build back better.
Around the world, more and more countries are embracing renewables. In Australia, as communities across the country push for more climate and environmental action, governments in Queensland, Tasmania and New South Wales have set ambitious goals to become renewable energy superpowers.
Together, we’ve made huge progress. But there’s still much work to do. That’s why we’re holding a two-day training and community organising program to bring people together and learn the skills we need to win for nature and our climate.
What: Activate community organising training
When: Saturday 27 February & Saturday 6 March, from 9-5pm
Where: Crows Nest Centre, 2 Ernest Place, Crows Nest, NSW 2065
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 if you require a free ticket.
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.
You’ll learn about ACF’s theory of change to build people power, change the story and fix the system – and how local groups fit into our strategy and can help win big national campaigns.
ACF Community Organisers Maryanne Stuart and Ken Matahari 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.
Because a better future is not only possible, but necessary, and we must build it together.
Hope to see you soon!
