Quit Coal is a collective that is run on the fuel of volunteer energy. Volunteering for Quit Coal can be exciting, empowering and involve a range of different things.
We have weekly Wednesday night meetings, where we share a meal and find out what’s been going on. We meet at 6pm on Wednesdays at Friends of the Earth (312 Smith St, Collingwood).You don’t need to let us know you’re coming, just show up.
We use a range of tactics to inform the broader Victorian community about plans for new and existing coal and gas projects in Victoria, and pressure the government and companies to stop investing in them. We focus on being strategic, non-violent, creative, and wherever possible, fun!
We hold rallies and public forums, mobilise and empower local community groups, lobby politicians, letterbox, collect petitions, speak to the media and do creative street theatre.
Whatever you’re doing, you meet amazing and interesting people, gain heaps of experience and hopefully have a lot of fun!
