South Island Dogwood Workshop: How We Strategize and Take Action

Thursday, July 12 at 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Volunteers at an organizing workshop in Vancouver's Chinatown, in January 2018.

Healthy social movements have an eco-system of actors. This may include not-for-profits, journalists, community groups, grassroots action-takers, First Nations, etc.

Here at Dogwood, we take our role in B.C.’s environmental movement seriously. We believe in building local political power and powering-up our campaigns through many people taking democratic action together.

At this workshop, you’ll learn some of the theory that informs our decision-making, the current state of our campaigns, and how we plan to take action together this summer.

You will also get to meet fellow Dogwood volunteers and staff!

Who is it for?

This workshop is for people who have previously volunteered with Dogwood in any capacity. It is an opportunity to learn more about us, having already decided that you’d like to be more involved.

If you have been involved for a long time, great! Come freshen up your organizing skills and vocabulary and meet people from across teams.
