Here's what a previous student had to say:

"Thank you to The Wilderness Society for providing this excellent training in Community Organising. A combination of great content and excellent trainers has given me more tools and skills for community organising and activism. I highly recommend this to others."

This course will teach you the fundamentals of community organising including:


  • theory and frameworks
  • relational organising skills
  • using personal narrative
  • cutting an issue and making a plan

  • The theory and frameworks of community organising
  • Relational organising skills
  • Leadership and facilitation
  • Communications for change (telling your personal narrative)

Is this training right for me?

We’re looking to transform the ways in which society connects and respects our natural environment. This program is a huge first step in discovering what we can do collectively. It’ll equip you with the skills, know-how, mentoring and connections you need to have an impact in your local community.
