An Advanced Training Workshop for Environmental NGOs

Friday October 14th, 10 AM – 4 PM
Sustainability Network/CSI, 192 Spadina Ave., (Meeting Room D), Toronto

Since we started the introduction to engagement organizing workshop series several years ago, we often get asked, “when will you launch the 2.0”? The answer has finally arrived and we hope you will be part of our first cohort! Have you gone through the introductory series and are you ready to for a deeper dive into conversations around data, segmentation, team building, leadership development and institutionalization of organizing? If so, this session is for you!

The goal of this new 2.0 workshop is to offer an opportunity for those who have begun to embrace engagement organizing in their respective organizations and are ready for a deeper conversation into overcoming the challenges that this approach offers. Session leaders will rely heavily on case study analysis, real world stories and techniques, and will draw interactive dialogue from participants to unpack challenges with an eye to sharing strategies to deepen our own success in driving robust engagement activities.

Session leaders:

Graham Saul has worked on global justice and environmental issues for 20 years and is Executive Director of Ecology Ottawa, an organization that has embraced this model.

Lindsay Telfer is Director of the Canadian Freshwater Alliance and an avid believer in the power of communities to come together and organize. She draws on a decade of experience working with Sierra Club Canada on grassroots organizing.

The registration cost is $40 or $25 per person for teams of 2 or more from the same organization. Registration includes a full day of instruction, lunch, refreshments and handouts.
