Implementation Day: Get Involved with Lighter Footprints’ Action Groups

Sunday, March 15, 2020 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Location: The Guide Hall, 1 Faversham Rd, Canterbury

Do you want to contribute to the work of Lighter Footprints on climate but aren't sure how? Come and find out what we do. Join us for an afternoon program on getting involved with our action groups on Sunday March 15 from 2-5pm. If you are short of time you can drop in from 2.45pm for afternoon tea and a self paced tour of the group tables and a chat. Carolyn will present a report back on February's Strategic Planning Day, we take a deeper dive into the work of our working groups and support groups, and you will have an opportunity to find a place for your skills and your concern for the climate.

We would love to talk to you about what kind of volunteering would work for you. Come and meet fellow Lighter Footprints members and supporters who are the powerhouse of Lighter Footprints’ climate action at local, State and Federal levels. Our action groups include Energy Transition, Local Government, Climate Emergency, Letter Writers and Speakers, Communications and more. You can contribute as much or as little as you have time for, using skills you have now, learning new skills or just offer a helping hand at events. Whether you are a policy nut, great at social media, keen on clean energy transition, want to support climate candidates, good with new visitors, or are fantastic at combining letter dropping leaflets with daily walks, we need you. Our working group and support group leaders would love to meet you and learn more about how you can contribute to climate action in Boroondara and Kooyong.

You are welcome to arrive before 2pm for nibbles to chat with group leaders. Highlights of the first hour include a report back on February’s Strategic Planning Day outcomes and what we hope to achieve this year, as well as a more detailed look at our working groups and support groups.

If you are short on time you may wish to arrive at 3pm (or a little earlier for refreshments) to meet and chat with members of the working groups at a table setting or one on one.

Carolyn, Lynn, Mick and working group leaders will be delighted to talk to you, and help find the best fit for your skills and enthusiasm.

Feel free to ring Carolyn Ingvarson for further information on 0411 115 186.
