Join us for an Online Action Planning Skillshare this Saturday 28 March at 3pm!
This is a challenging time for everyone, and building community is essential to our resilience.
Together, we can get through this.
As we always say at Friends of the Earth: Action is the antidote to despair.
That’s why Friends of the Earth is organising an Action Planning Skillshare this Saturday 28 March at 3pm. The event will be hosted online via Zoom. It will also be recorded so you won’t miss anything if you can’t make it*!
Actions, whether they be in the physical world or online, are an important part of campaign work. Done well they are a creative, energising and community-building means of pressuring decision-makers and getting our message heard.
This workshop, facilitated by Samantha Castro, Operations Coordinator at Friends of the Earth with a wealth of experience to draw from, will cover the basics of organising a safe and successful action. By the end, you’ll be well equipped to organise your own action!
This will include:
Roles: In order to work effectively as a team and ensure everyone’s safety, various roles such as collective care, media, and buddy systems can be set up beforehand.
Risks: It is important to prepare for different potential outcomes. What are the risks involved and how would you address different scenarios?
Media: What is the best way to ensure your message gets heard? To ensure your message is loud and clear, we’ll be giving some pointers on media preparation and messaging!
If you’re interested in participating in or organising actions - if you would like to gain skills and confidence to organise for the causes that matter - this is the event for you!
We look forward to seeing you there!
This event will be hosted on Wurundjeri country, however people from all across so-called Australia are invited to participate. We acknowledge that these lands are stolen and that sovereignty was never ceded.
