    ENGAGEMENT ORGANIZING 101 – FOR VOLUNTEER GROUPS HARNESSING THE POWER OF YOUR PEOPLE FOR BETTER ENVIRONMENTAL RESULTS!
    7:00 PM to 9:00 PM 2 part webinar which can be completed anywhere with an Internet connection. Engagement Organizing's approach focuses on relationship-building to mobilize supporters. It's particularly useful for the savvy volunteer-run organization that focuses on building volunteer teams to do the bulk of its work. The goal of the online training will be to share the theory and practice of developing successful engagement organizations that are driven largely, if not entirely by, volunteer leaders. Session leaders will describe real world stories and techniques of others doing this kind of work, and also tap into lessons from participants online. These two webinars will explore topics such as: engagement based theories of change; supporter recruitment; tools for managing supporters (that are relevant to largely volunteer initiatives); supporting leadership development; and distributed organizing models. Graham Saul, {Executive Director of Ecology Ottawa}, has worked on global justice and environmental issues for 20 years embracing engagement organizing and therefore has real world experience to share – successes and failures both. Lindsay Telfer {National Project Director, Canadian Freshwater Alliance} has developed a training program that is designed to support greater adoption of engagement organizing approaches and used it for several of their current initiatives. Registration cost (both session are one registration) is $10 for volunteer based groups and $25 for staffed organizations. Registration: https://registrations.sustainabilitynetwork.ca/engagement-organizing-101-for-volunteer-groups-harnessing-the-power-of-your-people-for-better-environmental-results/ Location:   Webinar, Toronto , It is a 2 part webinar.
