Our next meeting will be a very special one, as we will have a video conference with Keith Stewart, GP's Senior Energy Strategist. He wants to consult with local groups about his polluter pay project, that I believe will aim to target big polluters and make them take responsibility for the environmental cost of their actions.
We will meet as usual at 6 pm at the Greenpeace office and we have video conference equipment set up. After this exchange, if there is still time we will also discuss our ongoing projects, such as:
-the plastic attack, how it went and how we want to continue with that campaign
- attending Surfrider's English Bay beach clean - Dec 15 at 11:00 am
- collaborating with Extinction Rebellion
- conversations about climate change
Do you want to participate in this conversation, or help with our current projects, and/or get involved in our future projects, propose a project we should tackle? Come to our meeting! If this will be your first meeting, read on:
There are Greenpeace Local Groups and allied groups all over the world. These collaborative-based groups are made-up of Greenpeace volunteers who are autonomously organising alongside Greenpeace in their local communities and I want to make this happen in Vancouver!
Do you have organising skills, time to volunteer, and a passion for Greenpeace and our work?
Do you have an idea for a protest, a petition, a local campaign about issues aligned with protecting our environment?
Have you been trying to make a change as an individual but would love to turn it into a collective effort?
Do you want to help organise fun social events that also raise awareness about important issues?
Do you want to help educate the general public about the dangers of pipelines, what destructive things their banks may be doing with their money, the dangers of plastic pollution, the amazing solutions we can all come up with?
Do you want to pool your strength with like minded people to hold big companies or governments accountable for the damage they are doing to nature?
In the future we would like to make some of these meetings and events children - and baby - friendly, as people taking full-time care of little ones should also be able to have their say in how the world is shaped and do their bit to protect their children's future! Let us know if you want to volunteer to be a childminder at future events. Ideally, several people would take turns.
Whether you would like to take on an organising role at our new group, or you want to be on call to help with any projects we come up with, come out to meet us.
