Join a Wilderness Society local team in 2017
Since launching our Movement For Life organising program in April 2016, we’ve had nearly 400 volunteer leaders join our movement and complete our two-day program across the country, with over 110 trained here in Sydney. Many training graduates are now working in their communities to grow the movement and make a real difference for nature.
We’ve set up five regional organising teams to bring together training graduates in a coordinated way, to put into practice your skills to campaign for change in your local community and beyond. If you are not yet in a team you can join an existing team or talk to us about setting up a new team in your area.
Our teams have been out having hundred of conversations with people in the community about protecting nature; including stopping land clearing, protecting the Great Australian Bight, harnessing the power of nature to as part of a plan for effective action on climate change, and transforming the way Australian Governments plan and respond with environmental issues.
We have bold ambitions and plans for the future. To be able to successfully make the case for significant change, protect our natural world and get real action on climate change, we need a vibrant, strong, coordinated movement of people who can demand real environmental change from our decision-makers.
Teams have been hosting stalls, film screenings, trainings, ‘meet your MP’ workshops and campaign events, as well as attending rallies and having conversations. This is all designed to reach new people—inviting them to be involved, learn new skills and make a difference. If you have an idea about how your team would like to build your local community, we can support you! Contact Lauren and Teryn at [email protected].
