Time: 1-5pm (snacks provided!)
Where: Sustainability Trust, 2 Forresters Lane (off Tory Street), Te Aro
Who: Anyone* opposed to deep sea oil drilling and interested in learning about NVDA for this and other work. We'll provide the basics of non-violent direct action as well as providing learning/discussion opportunities for the more experienced.
Come along and...
- be inspired by the history of NVDA actions both in Aotearoa and around the world
- learn about the theory behind the action
- get informed about your legal rights when taking part in an action
- have the chance to try out some awesome practical skills in a safe environment with trained facilitators from Greenpeace's actions team.
We'll be hearing from members of Oil Free Wellington against Anadarko's plans for deep sea oil drilling off the coast of Wellington and how NVDA can effectively be used in the movement against fossil fuel extraction.
This workshop promises to be inspiring, educational but most importantly a lot of fun! Please bring plentiful enthusiasm for learning about NVDA and a willingness to be a hands on participant.
