Supporting volunteers and local groups campaigning to Reclaim Victoria’s Environment

Through our organising program, more than 800 people have volunteered to participate in our campaign. They come to events, and take actions like petitioning, street stalls, making phone calls and connecting with their local MPs on environment issues.

We have more than 350 volunteers in our local campaign areas who are deeply engaged and are the backbone of our community work. They are organised into local groups that meet regularly to knock on doors, make phone calls, and get out on the streets talking to community members about the environment. We’ve been training and developing leaders in these local groups. Over the past 12 months, we have trained over 200 people in strategic campaign skills, including effective communication, persuasive conversations and team building and facilitation.
