Hello there,


Thank you for signing up to come to Greenpeace’s North West Skillshare in Liverpool! We’ve got a mix of new people and members of local groups coming which is fantastic and should be really enriching. This will be the perfect place to meet like-minded people, and see how you can get involved with Greenpeace campaigns. We’re really excited to meet you all.


As we’re in the final week ahead of the event, here are some important details:

On Saturday 13th October, we will be holding a regional skillshare for Greenpeace volunteers from all across the North West.

This event is open to Local Group Coordinators and those who have been involved with Greenpeace for a little while with an interest in skilling-up, and taking on a more active role within the groups, and brand new people - we'd love to meet you! 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 Blackpool, Liverpool, Manchester and Preston.

Content of the day

We're working on the agenda but sessions are likely to include:

  • Campaign presentation 
  • Skills development workshops (tbc but possibly around things like street campaigning, roles within groups, digital campaigning, fundraising, local media, recruitment and retention etc)

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


Please enroll to come along to this event

Lunch will be provided and travel expenses will reimbursed on the day (please bring your receipts). Please try to book advance/ group-save tickets if possible to help us keep costs down). All food will be vegetarian and vegan but please add a comment when you enrol if you have any other dietary requirements e.g. if you are gluten-free or have any food allergies.
