Learn how to engage your Federal parliamentarian on issues of climate justice & develop your skills as an advocate.

Together, with our friends at Common Grace, we're building a movement of everyday Australian Christians who will advocate for Australia to play a bigger role in contributing to the global effort to combat climate change. Learn more.

Join us alongside our friends at Common Grace for grassroots political engagement training.

Date:

Thu, 13 AUGUST 2020

Time:

7:30 PM – 9:30 PM AEST

You’ll learn how to amplify the human story of climate change within your local Electorate, and be equipped to call for urgent action on climate change from our political leaders.

We’ll be joined by Brooke Prentis (CEO, Common Grace), Jo Knight (Advocacy Director, TEAR) and Jasmine Wrangles (Community Organiser, TEAR) to lead us through the evening.

The training will cover:

  • The human story of climate and the impact on both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, and the most vulnerable people living in poverty in our world
  • Our current Australian political context and the relevancy of climate change in the times of COVID-19.
  • A detailed overview of the campaign, policy briefing, and insider view on strategy and messaging.
  • The ‘how-to’ of grassroots lobbying & next steps for getting involved in your Electorate or State Senate group.
  • A chance to connect with and learn from advocates right across Australia

We’d love to see you there! Register now to reserve your spot.
