Friends of the Earth Campaign Organisers Programme

18th September 2013
Becoming a Campaign Organiser is a chance to hone your activism skills and to contribute to real world change.

Becoming a Campaign Organiser takes a commitment of about three hours a week over the two years of the programme. In year one we’ll help you set up a Friends of the Earth group or lead a campaign with an existing one. In year two we’ll support you to help link together the groups in your area and support them to campaign together.

You’ll get:

  • An intensive training weekend in winter 2013/4
  • Ongoing 1:1 telephone support
  • Regular skillshares with other participants
  • £100 to run your first campaign
  • A £50 bursary for travel and accommodation
  • Friends of the Earth Certificate in Campaign Organising (on completion of the course)
  • Applications are welcome from within and beyond the Friends of the Earth local group network.
