ACT ON CLIMATE MEET EVERY TUESDAY NIGHT
Action Organising Meetings & Organising Training Workshops happen on alternative weeks
Organising Training Series Workshop of the fortnight:
#4: June 20 - Storytelling & effective conversations
What role do narratives play in movement building? The messages we use to communicate drive our campaigns, but we can also utilise our own story as a tool to organise.
This workshop utilises formats of storytelling which connect our individual experience to our community. The interactions we have with people can move them to action if we approach the exchange with an awareness of how to best connect with people on issues.
April 18 - June 27 Organising Training Series
During these weeks our meeting will be structured with a 2 hr workshop to build our community organising skills, including dinner and open space for post workshop chats. This is a collaboration with the Sustainable Cities collective.
The training series is open to anyone interested in building their activist skills and aims to build capacity in our collective and broader movement. Sign up to get updates and info on our Organising Training Series here
Friends of the Earth Melbourne's Act on Climate collective works with frontline communities, workers, and unions to build a strong and diverse Climate Justice movement that governments can’t ignore.
Since 2017, Act on Climate has campaigned to make Victoria the national leader on climate action.
We led the community campaign for the Andrews government to set science-based Emissions Reduction Targets and are now calling on the Victorian government to commit to a plan to beat those targets and accelerate the pace of emissions reduction, and more.
Weekly collective meetings are the engine room for our campaigns.
Come along to get involved in a grassroots action on climate change. No prior knowledge or experience necessary, just a passion for community and climate solutions.
NOTE: Friends of the Earth is a COVID-safe workplace. When we return to face-to-face meetings, we ask that attendees are fully vaccinated.
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waterways in the area now known as Victoria. We pay respect to Elders past, present, and emerging, as well as to all First Nations communities who significantly contribute to the life of the area. We acknowledge sovereignty was never ceded. This is stolen land.
