Kathleen Syme Community Library, 251 Faraday Street, Carlton VIC 3053

THIS TRAINING SESSION IS NOW FULLY BOOKED. Please RSVP for the next training weekend on 14-15 July.

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.

“As part of a community of like-minded people, I now have the direction, purpose and skills to translate my passion into tangible, meaningful action.” 
– Chris Farrow, course graduate

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.

BYO lunch—tea, coffees and snacks provided.

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.
