What are people saying about us?
Claire O’Rourke, National Director, Solar Citizens
Organising helps to build relationships and skills both within and between communities and the fellowship follows the same approach. The fellowship is essential for organisations that are working to build power within communities or considering making the leap into this work.
Toni Walkington, Secretary, Community Public Sector Union, WA
Ben Margetts, Australian Youth Climate Coalition 2007
Harry Jennens, The Climate and Health Action Network
Govind Maksay, MarketForces organiser
In addition to the formal learning, the personal relationships I have formed with other participants and the facilitators will be extremely important to help me become a more effective and confident campaigner. Without hesitation I would recommend the Fellowship to other campaigners.
Anna Rose, ASEN Convenor and NUS National Environment Officer 2005
Bob Bingaman, Sierra Club National Organizing Director
There is no better place to learn the craft of organizing, then immediately apply those learning to today’s most relevant climate and environmental campaigns, than the Community Organizing Fellowship. The program is an in-depth immersion into the craft of grassroots organizing. Going through this program will transform campaigners and how they think about and implement campaigns which build grassroots power to achieve significant environmental victories.
