As a member or supporter of CCWA you are part of a powerful network of people working to protect our environment and build a more sustainable future.
And as a network, we need to come together to discuss strategies, set priorities, share ideas and learn new skills.
The Conservation Council of WA is hosting its Annual Conference on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th October.
Please join us for a morning, day or weekend of debate, workshops and networking to create a stronger movement of people working to protect our environment.
Some of the highlights will include:
- Hear from WA Environment Minister Hon. Albert Jacob about the State Governments priorities in his portfolio.
- Learn new approaches to communicating your message with Mark Chenery from Common Cause Australia.
- Take part in a discussion with a panel of Members of Parliament addressing WA’s most important environmental issues and policies.
- Hear about CCWA’s activities over the last year and help shape our plans for the future.
- Take part in workshops, including on social media, lobbying MPs and recruiting supporters and volunteers to your cause.
Mark Chenery from Common Cause Australia will lead the weekend with an introduction to the Common Cause approach to public engagement based on cultural values. On Sunday, Mark will lead a full day intensive on communication techniques and framing, with content specifically relevant to some key WA environment campaigns. This is a must for anyone working in communications or advocacy.
