The Wilderness Society in Surry Hills, Australia

Hi!

We are a volunteer group of Wilderness Society supporters in the Eastern suburbs of Sydney who are passionate about the environment. We are looking to connect with like minded people who want to work together to protect nature in our local area, across Sydney and be part of a growing movement across Australia who will stand together to demand real environmental change from our decision makers.

Join us for our next meeting to find out more about us, share your ideas and passions and help shape the direction of the team!


Say no to the gas company CEOs!

Thursday, August 03, 2017 at 11:00 AM · 125 rsvps
Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney in Sydney, Australia

A short and sharp protest outside a high-powered event with a gas-promoting agenda. 

The protest will target a luncheon titled, “The role of Gas in Australia’s Energy Future” which will feature the speakers, Kevin Gallagher, CEO of Santos, and Mick McCormack, the CEO of APA Group (the company planning to build the Pilliga gas pipeline) as well as the NSW Chief Scientist, Professor Mary O’Kane.

Join farmers, Gamilaraay Traditional Owners, and renewable energy advocates to tell these CEOs to frack off from Gamilaraay Country, from our forests, farmland and precious Great Artesian Basin! 

Unconventional gas is high cost, high emissions, high risk, and unwelcome in NSW. Renewable energy can provide reliable electricity at a fraction of the price of gas without putting farmers livelihoods at risk. 

The Santos 850 well Narrabri Gas Project in the Pilliga forest is the final CSG proposal in NSW. Its Environmental Impact Statement recently inspired a record breaking 23,000 submissions—with over 98% opposing. 

Join us to prove, yet again, that CSG has no social licence, and to take our opposition straight to the top!

For more information on the event we will be protesting, please see here:http://www.ceda.com.au/events/eventdetails/2017/8/n170803?EventCode=N170803

We are your neighbours and peers, and we have been working with the Wilderness Society to build a team of local people who can stand up for our shared values in Brisbane’s southern suburbs.

Join us as we launch our team to you, our community,  and invite you to get involved.

We are working with the Norman Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee, and together we will also be doing a tree planting on a local site in much need of revegetation. On the day we will plant many kinds of native species in pre prepared holes so there’s no digging. 

Bring your kids, friends, and family along for a fun, educational, and impactful morning out. Food and drink will be provided, and you will hear from several great speakers.

Exhibition runs Monday, 10 July 2017 to Friday, 11 August 2017

Kudelka, Polly and Chris Downes are three of Tasmania’s leading

media commentators, using satirical art to cut through political spin

and tell it like it is. 

Since its election three years ago, the Hodgman Government has gifted

these cartoonists a mountainous pile of woodchip grade forest policy to

draw upon. 

Premier Hodgman unsuccessfully tried to log in Tasmania’s World Heritage

Area and now plans to un-reserve and log other protected forests. Come

chortle at the chainsaw-sharp analysis of these acclaimed cartoonists.

Sydney Two-Day Community Organising Training August 2017

Saturday, August 19, 2017 at 08:30 AM · 25 rsvps
Wilderness Society, Sydney in Sydney, Australia

Training-small.jpg

Wilderness Society supporters are invited to attend our two-day Fundamentals of Community Organising training course. Training is free for Wilderness Society supporters and will teach you the core skills of community organising. You'll have the opportunity after the training to work on Wilderness Society campaigns, join a local organising team and to take the skills you learn to work with your local community on issues you care about.

Background

Our training program is a key part of our new community organising strategy. Our many successes over the last 40 years have shown that the best way to protect nature for future generations is to demonstrate visible public support, not only for the protection of nature in Australia, but care for the climate globally.

We are returning to our people-power roots and investing in our greatest strength: our ability to inspire and empower people to create change. Community organising is the primary source of our power and will help us win campaigns, but it is much more than this. It involves empowering, training and supporting leaders to activate their communities, build effective teams and create solutions to achieve our shared vision of a society that is deeply connected to nature and seeks to protect our natural world.

The course

This course will provide you with the fundamentals of community organising including:

  • theory and frameworks,
  • relational organising skills,
  • using personal narrative,
  • cutting an issue and making a plan, and
  • core organising skills including running effective house parties.

Through this training, you will be well equipped to work with the Wilderness Society on our current campaigns and community organising program, as well as work with your local community or organisations to take effective action on the issues you really care about.

You can see the full agenda here: two-day community organising training agenda

This course is free for Wilderness Society supporters and catering will be provided. Please ensure you let us know if you have any dietary requirements, mobility issues or anything else we need to take into consideration.

The training will be held in a venue close to Sydney Central Station.The exact location will be provided closer to the event.
