If sleeping in and arriving late you are most welcome but be sure and ring 0457463971 to gain entry to the building.
Here’s a quick recap:
We are running an info session about MP meetings, covering everything from how to set up the meeting, getting good press and social media coverage, and, most importantly, having an effective conversation with a politician.
Join us on Saturday 7 December for a workshop to learn how, or contact us to arrange another way to join the campaign.
When: Saturday, 7/12/19, 9:30-10:30am (Join in the Strategy meeting from 9am also if you like and feel free to stick around after the workshop for a coffee and a chat down the road.)
Where: Ballarat Trades Hall, Camp Street
Enquiries and RSVP: By reply email, or contact Elizabeth on 0402 553 181 – it helps to know how many are joining us, but if you don’t get to that, please feel free to turn up anyway.
If you can’t make it on the day, please register your interest and we can either run you through the info individually or make sure to let you know of our next workshop.

It’s almost twelve months now since we introduced monthly Ballarat Climate Action Network strategy meetings and it is timely to review how things have gone.

Let’s do this! All are welcome!
Locally, nationally, globally, we have to act. We face a climate crisis and we can’t wait for others to fix it. It might feel overwhelming… but it’s not! We can show our voice, show we care, and begin to affect meaningful change.
We need you! And we need a healthy planet. Will you join us?
Ballarat Trades Hall, 24 Camp Street Ballarat
Sept 20 at 12 PM – 2 PM
“If you go to one demonstration and then go home, that’s something, but the people in power can live with that. What they can’t live with is sustained pressure that keeps building, organisations that keep doing things, people that keep learning lessons from the last time and doing it better the next time.” Noam Chomsky
It’s time to get real about the ecological and climate emergency we are facing. Our political system is broken and our leaders are failing to protect us.
It’s time to tell the truth and act as though the truth is real. It’s time to band together and be effective as part of an international movement of mass participation civil disobedience. Come and hear about why we need the Extinction Rebellion and how you can be a part of it.
Everyone is welcome, the first hour will be a talk introducing Extinction Rebellion (arrive before 11 please!)
And from 12-1 it’s a chance for local residents to form an affinity group and start making the connections that will make this movement a success. If you can’t make this talk we have lots of other area talks coming up regularly.
And if you want a talk in your area email email@example.com and we can organise one
11am to 1pm, Ballarat Trades Hall, Camp St, Saturday, Sept 7 2019
If people wish to stay after 6pm that’ll be fine – Much thanks to Therese for organising.
