Wilderness Society volunteers are invited to attend our 2 day Community Organising training course.  


Our training program is a key part of our community organising strategy. 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. Our training program will work to develop leaders across the country; this will, of course, help us win campaigns. But it will also build capacity and infrastructure that will allow us to keep winning into the next generation.

The course

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 and core organising skills including running effective house parties.
