Have you ever wondered what actions you can take to deliver the loudest and most powerful voice for nature?
You have the opportunity to find out at this information night, where we’ll discuss how to leverage the accountability moment presented by the NSW election to secure outcomes for forest protection and community rights.
The NSW Government needs to be accountable to communities and nature. The influence of corporate money in politics means governments are acting in the interests of big business instead of communities, and forests are paying the price. Our demands for better protection of High Conservation Value forests, threatened species habitat and remaining old growth forests in NSW are not being heard. But we deserve the right to know about, participate in and challenge decisions on these issues. Only when communities have a fair say in environmental decisions will we get better outcomes for people and nature.

WHO: those in NSW new to the Wilderness Society as well as those who are already involved
Over the last seven years, thousands of people have come together to learn how they can be part of the solution on the environmental issues they care about. Joining thousands of other passionate community members puts the power back in the hands of the people. The Wilderness Society is building a network of skilled community members to take coordinated action.
This evening will be a way for you to find out how you can be a part of the movement and to learn about our work to protect forests and secure strong community rights in NSW in the lead up to the state election on 25 March. You will take away tangible actions that you can take together with your community in the short term.
