There’s always a lot going on here at Quit Coal.

The best way to find out more is to come to one of our monthly Volunteer Induction nights. They’re held on the first Tuesday of every month but RSVP’ing is a must! Just email if you’re interested.

We also very much welcome new folks to our weekly meetings. Meetings are at 6pm Wednesday, upstairs at Friends of the Earth (312 Smith Street, Collingwood). They are open to anyone who wants a fossil fuel free Victoria.
