One of the main ways that we come together as a group is through our campaign meetings. They provide an ideal opportunity to plan actions and campaigns as well as respond to things that have come up such as consultations. It’s not all work, work, work, we also encourage socialising before and after the meeting!
Don’t worry if you’re completely new to campaigns, we’ll do our best to bring you up to speed during the meeting. Everyone who is involved in Birmingham Friends of the Earth started from a similar place – so you’re not alone!
Big Monthly Campaign Meeting
We host our Big Monthly Campaign Meeting on the first Monday of the month, 7:15pm until 8:45pm. These take place in the meeting room of our building, The Warehouse (54-57 Allison Street, B55TH). Doors open from 6:30pm for people to arrive early for chat over a cuppa. If it’s your first meeting feel free to get in touch and we will make sure some of our friendly volunteers are there to greet you.
During the meeting, we update the group with progress of our campaigns and plan upcoming activities.
Other campaign meetings
If there are actions to prepare for or campaign plans that need to be made or we are putting together a consultation response we arrange to meet on Mondays throughout the month, 7:15pm-8:45pm usually on Zoom unless we are making props for an action or banner painting, then we meet at The Warehouse. As these vary each week, if you email us at email@example.com we can send you the details including the joining link or you can call us on 01216326909.
We also run regular online and in person training workshops to empower people to take climate action. Workshops include; meeting facilitation and notetaking, Canva training, social media, public speaking and more!
