Going Forward, Leading Change: Skills Training for More Effective Community Engagement

Are you concerned about decisions being made and the projects being considered in the Lower Mainland, or anywhere in BC, that impact the health and well-being of our communities? Do you want to learn skills to become more effective when engaging with your community, local media, and decision makers? Would you like to learn skills on how to build power and make meaningful change?

Then we have the opportunity for you!

The PIPE UP Network is bringing together a host of skilled organizers and advocates for an afternoon of dynamic skills training and capacity building open to anyone interested in nurturing skills for effective community engagement.

At the PIPE UP Network, our primary focus is on the risks associated with transporting tar sands diluted bitumen, and Kinder Morgan's plans to build a new pipeline through the communities we call home. However, the skills training will be useful for all people who are keen on getting more engaged in issues that impact the lower mainland.
The event will involve a series of workshops on topics such as:
Consensus Decision Making
Engaging Political Representatives
Media & Messaging
Participating in Environmental Review Assessments
Grassroots Organizing
Online Organizing/Facebook Engagement
Peaceful Direct Action
