Maybe you've heard something about the Wilderness Society's new Movement for Life community organising training, or maybe you're concerned about the changes to NSW land clearing laws, or maybe you're just concerned about the general state of environmental management in NSW. Whatever the case, you're invited to come and find out how you might become more involved in Wilderness Society activities.

The evening will cover who The Wilderness Society is and what we do. It will include information about our latest campaigns and how you can get involved in a practical way. We'll also let you know about the society's Sydney-based regional organising teams you can join to get involved with people in your local area who also care about the environment and what to make a difference.

In addition, we will be sharing information about some great training opportunities for our community organising program, where you can learn new skills to start making a difference in a meaningful way.

The Wilderness Society started as a small group of nature-lovers standing up for our wild places, and through the iconic Franklin River campaign enlivened a movement and inspired a generation. 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 for not only the protection of nature, but the global climate in Australia.

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

If you've ever thought about volunteering or joining your local Wilderness Society regional organising group or want to know more about The Wilderness Society then come along to this evening!
