G'day there folk,
we are seeking volunteers to be a part of an exciting door knocking project in Muswellbrook in early 2016!
Lock The Gate has already began this effective initiative in other mining-affected and threatened communities within the Hunter, and has found it to be an extremely effective way to connect with local people,understand how to best provide support and gain more Lock The Gate supporters.
March the 5th and 6th has been locked in for Muswellbrook, and we need your help!
Why you should get involved:
- It will be a wonderful opportunity to meet like minded people
- strengthen skills in community outreach, cross-communication and understanding
- support the transition from fossil fuels to renewables
- support heavily mining-affected and threatened communities
- a wonderful all round learning experience
- You will be a part of making positive change from a grassroots level
- Boost Lock the Gate's database of supporters
- support and assist the creation of a post-coal plan for the Hunter
- a wonderful opportunity for a first time volunteer experience
- most of all it will be a lot of FUN!!!
On each door we knock upon,we will be asking folk to participate in a simple 3 question survey. A neutral, respectful,positive attitude is required to maximise conversation on what people feel about coal and their community, develop understanding of the community and to gain support.
So come on get involved! Be a part of this beautiful movement ,uniting the people for a better future!
