1. Complete the registration form with your name and suburb, after submitting the form you will land on a page where you can print a customised flyer (you’ll also receive an email with a link to print it out later if you need to).
2. Print out the leaflet, and don’t forget to add a little personal note to your neighbours in the designated section.
3. Put on your walking shoes and go for a walk! You can letterbox as widely as you’re comfortable with – your street, your block, or your whole suburb!
4. Once survey results start arriving from your area, we’ll be in touch to share them with you. While you wait, you can start planning your virtual neighbourhood meeting. Check out the guide below.
Book a meeting. Choose a day and time, and a video calling platform to use. We recommend Zoom, check out our guide here.
Invite friendly neighbours. Pick up the phone and call all your survey respondents who ticked that they want to be involved in a local community group. You can also invite any local friends or family who you think would be interested. A couple of days before the meeting, text or call all your RSVPs to confirm their attendance.
Have a great neighbourhood meeting. Getting together with locals is a great way to share your stories and discuss what Building Back Better could look like in Victoria. The main purpose of this meeting is to connect with your neighbours and start planning how to advocate for Building Back Better.
We suggest the following agenda:
Connect with the Environment Victoria volunteer community (details below) – after your first neighbourhood meeting, get in touch to let us know how it went and how we can help you with your next steps!
To connect with others taking action and to share your own experiences, please join our Environment Victoria Volunteer Community Facebook group or email us at email@example.com
While doing any activities outside the home it’s important to follow all government guidelines about physical distancing and practicing proper hygiene.
