12 January 2024:
We are a powerful force for nature! How do we get people involved in environmental action?
This week on EarthChat, Tim and Ruth will be joined by Don Vogt, a long-term environmental activist and convenor of the ACF Inner Melbourne Community Group.
Don is a tireless and committed community leader and he dedicates most of his week to organising events, recruiting new members and further strengthening this powerful local group. They plant trees, get AFL footballers involved, run workshops, lobby politicians and do lots of local clean-ups. Don is gifted at making people feel welcome in this diverse group and encouraging them to take on leadership roles.
Don will be sharing some of what he has learned in getting people involved and some of the challenges he has faced along the way.
