We're excited to offer our new Community Organising Training course, Movement For Life, to Wilderness Society volunteers and supporters.

The two-day course runs from Saturday, 16 September from 9am to 5:00pm to Sunday, 17 September from 9am to 3:30pm.


Our community organising program is all about immersing yourself in an incredible learning and development experience so that collectively we can better protect, promote and restore wilderness across Australia.

This two-day course will give you experience and skills in:

  • The theory and frameworks of community organising
  • Relational organising
  • Leadership and facilitation
  • Communications for change (telling your personal narrative)
  • Campaign planning
  • Activating your local community
  • Building grassroots teams and volunteer management

Is this training right for me?

Do you care about nature protection and do you have a yearning to be more effective in this space? Yes? Then this is for you!

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.

If you can, please bring along $10 to donate to morning tea, lunch, tea, coffees and snacks provided over the two days.

Please ensure you let us know via email if you have any dietary requirements, mobility needs or anything else you think we need to take into consideration.

This program is offered to those currently volunteering (or are seeking to volunteer) free of charge. Spaces are strictly limited, so make sure you RSVP as soon as possible or get in touch if you need any further information.
