Deforestation Door Canvassing

Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 10:00 AM · 21 rsvps
TBA in Brisbane, Australia

ZDQLD_RGB.jpg

There is a deforestation crisis in QLD killing our wildlife, damaging our reef, and contributing to climate change, but together we can stop it! When people learn about this issue they are outraged and demand change...and that's our job...to tell them.

We will be door knocking in the areas of Mount Ommaney and Mansfield every second Sunday, and we need your help. Training and resources will be provided and we promise you will have fun, meet new friends, and really feel like you have contributed to positive change, because you will have. Your team leaders are all experienced door knockers and will be there to guide and mentor you.

We will meet onsite at 10am (you will be notified of the meeting point), have something to eat and run through some training together and then set off to change the world :) We will then come back together at about 1pm and will do a quick debrief before parting ways at 1:30pm. 

These days are a great way for anyone to make a contribution, no matter your age or experience. We can't wait to see you there!

If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact Lead Organiser Kaine Johnson on 0499 092 565.
