North East regional skillshare

The CastleGate, Tramways Suite Melbourne Street NE1 2JQ Newcastle upon Tyne
36 persons are going

On Saturday 12th August, we will be holding a regional skillshare for Greenpeace volunteers from all across the North East.

This event is open to brand new people who have never done anything with Greenpeace (but would like to), as well as those who have been involved for a while. So please enrol if you're interested in coming and I will send you more information nearer the time.

We currently have local groups in Durham, Newcastle and Tynedale but please also enrol if you're from other parts of the North East, as we'd love to set up a new group or two in the region.

Content of the day

I'm still working on the agenda but sessions are likely to include:

  • Introduction to Greenpeace for newer people
  • Campaign presentation (probably Amazon Reef or Ocean Plastics)
  • Street campaign training
  • Skills development workshops (tbc but possibly around things like event organising, digital campaigning, fundraising, local media, political lobbying etc)

The day will hopefully be fun, interactive and informative. I really hope you can come and join us on the day.

Please enrol to express your interest; I'll ask you to confirm nearer the time.

Lunch will be provided and travel expenses will reimbursed on the day (please bring your receipts). All food will be vegetarian but please add a comment when you enrol if you have any other dietary requirements e.g. if you are vegan, gluten-free or have any food allergies.
