Hello dear fellow volunteers,
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 organizing alongside Greenpeace in their local communities and I want to make this happen in Vancouver!
You are invited to the first Greenpeace Vancouver Local Group Meeting! We will hear all about what Greenpeace is up to, and have a chance to discuss a structure for our new group, identify people who want to be in charge of different areas, and brainstorm projects we want to get started.
Do you have organizing 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 and help get this group off the ground!
Hope you can join us!
We will be providing vegan pizza for dinner.
