Puzzling over how to create change?! Frustrated by running events that don’t seem to go anywhere? Want to know how to develop strategy to get what you want?! Then come along to this FREE WORKSHOP to learn campaigning skills from an experienced campaigner, and from each other!

Workshop – ‘Campaigning into 2010: basics of campaign strategy and next steps for the NSW climate movement’
Facilitator: Meg Ivory, Local Community Organiser, Greenpeace Australia Pacific.
When: Thursday 12 November, 6-8pm.
Where: Amnesty International Australia office, Level 1, 79 Myrtle St Chippendale Sydney (off Abercrombie St, a 10-minute walk from Central Station).
Cost: Free.
RSVP to nswcagcontact@gmail.com.

This workshop will build on the enthusiasm and momentum gained around climate camp and the 350.org day of action. It will consider how we can expand upon our 2009 efforts for campaigning into 2010. The workshop will discuss why we campaign and the basics of campaign strategy – what do we want, who can give it to us, how will we make them give it to us and what tactics can we use? A range of tools will be introduced to give you confidence in starting to think about campaigning, whether it be for planning local campaigns, or getting involved in state or national-level ones.

Testimony on a recent workshop run for NSW climate action groups:
“I took part in the recent workshop on group maintenance and it was a great session! There was so much knowledge between all the people in the room and it was an easy and fun way to tap into it and save myself lots of time. I recommend these sessions to everyone to leverage off the learning that other groups have developed over years and years of work.” – Kirsten, Manly-Warringah Climate Action Group.

Don’t miss out on this practical and useful workshop! Come along to:
