Make the Switch: gas community outreach

Take the next step into climate action! Calling for community outreach volunteers to join our gas campaign

If you are looking for a meaningful way to take the next step in climate action and connect with your community, come along to our information session. We are building a crew of community outreach volunteers to run occasional stalls informing Canberra households about how to make the switch from gas to all-electric homes.

Time required: each stall will be 1–3 hours, scheduled approximately fortnightly, shared amongst the team according to availability

Location: shopping centres and markets across Canberra

Helpful skills/interests: fossil fuels, energy efficiency, climate action, community engagement, event organising

What you’ll learn: regular event organising, engagement skills, environmental impacts of gas, electric alternatives

Your impact: helping Canberra homes switch from gas to electricity will reduce community greenhouse gas emissions and public demand for fossil gas, assisting with the transition to clean energy and a safer climate

Starting date: From April 2021
