Advocacy Training at SUNY Oneonta

March 26 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Making a real difference for birds and our changing climate is so easy!

On Monday, March 26, 6-9pm, Audubon New York and Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society will co-host a special Climate Change Ambassador Training workshop at SUNY Oneonta, Craven Lounge of the Morris Conference Center, 108 Ravine Pkwy., Oneonta, NY 13820.  This three hour training session is open to anyone who is passionate about the health and resiliency of their community and want to turn their values into action. The focus of the training is to give a committed group of people the tools to advocate for climate change policies, laws and practices that make the world sustainable for birds and people alike.  No experience or expertise is required – all are welcome.  

The training will include tips as well as free support materials for having productive conversations on climate change, how to speak to representatives, and identifying stakeholders.  It will also include discussions on changes we can make in our own homes, our backyards, and in our community.  

Participants will learn why organizing matters, how to start a campaign, and concrete steps we can take today to be a voice for birds.

The program is free to attend but pre-registration is required to ensure an appropriate supply of materials and refreshments.  Register online at https://act.audubon.org/onlineactions/HaJNGu6bq0GFLKtypZxwcA2

Audubon Ambassadors are a committed group of people passionate about the health and resiliency of their community, and want to turn their values into action.

  • Being the messenger: Tips for having productive conversations on climate change, how to speak to representatives, and identifying stakeholders.
  • Being the solution: Changes we can make in our own homes, our backyards, and in our community that birds and people need for a safe, resilient, sustainable future.
