Apply to a Sierra Club Advocacy Training on Population and the Environment
This September, the Sierra Club Global Population and Environment Program will be hosting an advocacy training in Washington, DC. On September 25th & 26th, youth and adults interested in the connections between sustainability, population, consumption, and reproductive health and justice are invited to come learn about these intersectional issues of local and global significance.
Attendees will also receive training in leadership and advocacy skills, including practical tips on how to mobilize communities and influence decision makers when advocating for these important intersectional issues. Food will be covered for all participants during the training. For opportunities to win an all-expenses-paid trip to DC to attend, see the Video and Youth sections of the application, which can be downloaded here.
Applicants from all backgrounds and levels of experience are encouraged to apply. Please return the application to Kim Lovell at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 1, 2010 at 5:00pm EST.
Interested in the Global Population and Environment Program coming to your campus or community?
This fall, our program will be traveling through Texas, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey, giving presentations and co-sponsoring events with local campus and community groups. If you live in one of these areas and want to set up an event with the Global Population and Environment Program, please contact Kim Lovell at email@example.com. The tour will focus on population and climate change, but presentations and events can be tailored to the individual community, campus, or group interests.
