Lighter Footprints is organising a Doorknocking Day in Boroondara this Sunday 6th June from 2-5pm.

This is an easy and fun way to talk to people in your community about climate change and the opportunities for action.

We will also be promoting our upcoming Meet the Candidates forum at the Hawthorn Town Hall on 28th July (facilitated by Age journalist and author Liz Minchin).

It’s easy! We will be doing it in pairs, you will get a script to help avoid being tongue-tied at the door, you will be provided with materials (brochure/petition), and we will have a short ‘training session’ before you set off. Climate Code Red author and climate campaigner David Spratt will be available to provide some door knocking tips and training to the Lighter Footprints group before we hit the streets.

How it works: We start after lunch and do about an half an hour of training. Then we all get a map with an area to cover, we knock on doors for about two hours and then get together for a coffee or drink and talk about how it went. It’s that easy! People are friendly and usually very happy to take some information.

Where we start: We meet at 70 Through Road, Camberwell at 2pm for the training session this Sunday 6th June and to pick up materials (brochures etc). Meet back there again at 4.30-4.45pm for a drink and debrief!

Please RSVP to Fiona Armstrong, 0438 900 005, or

Next door-knocking date: Saturday 19th of June from 2-5pm.
