Campaign Organisers Programme

Have you got what it takes to organise a Friends of the Earth campaign?

You will have when you join the free Friends of the Earth Campaign Organising Programme.

Learn the secrets, learn the skills, set up or lead a real Friends of the Earth campaign with a local group, hone your activism skills, meet new like-minded people – and have fun too.

The Campaign Organisers Programme is a unique opportunity to develop real world skills with the help and guidance of some of Friends of the Earth’s most successful  campaigners – so what are you waiting for?

Commit 3 hours a week over the one to two year programme and you’ll get:

  • An induction and training weekend in London 25-26 October 2014
  • Ongoing 1:1 telephone support
  • Regular skillshares with other participants
  • A grant to kick-start your local campaign
  • A Friends of the Earth Certificate in Campaign Organising (on completion of the course).
