Press Release- Our annual summer leadership summit is just around the corner! Every year we bring our most committed grassroots activists together for three days to build skills, strategize, and get to know each other. This year, we’re partnering with Greenpeace for our most exciting training camp yet!
Experienced environmental campaigners from Greenpeace and ForestEthics have created a comprehensive agenda to prepare our grassroots leaders (that’s you!) to hit the ground running for the next year of campaigning. We’re gearing up for major victories at a pivotal point in history: our political atmosphere has shifted, the climate is heating up, and campaigns to protect Endangered Forests need strong leadership now more than ever before.
Who should apply:
New volunteers who are interested in joining ForestEthics’ dedicated activist core.
Apply online now, and look for my follow-up email in the coming weeks.
This training is FREE. We’ll even cover your meals! All you’re responsible for is your travel expenses to and from the training. For folks who need a little extra help, we have travel scholarships available. Just be sure to note any financial needs when you apply.
Deadline to apply:
Monday, May 25
I look forward to this summit all year–it’s a powerful way to connect with activists across the country who are running campaigns and organizing in their communities. I can’t wait to see you at the 2009 Activist Training Camp!
For the forests,
