Ways to get involved
One of the most important things you can do as a volunteer is help to build the Solar Citizens movement - this national network of solar owners, solar supporters and local solar action groups all joining together to protect and grow solar in Australia. Here are some ways to do this:
Be a digital volunteer - Willing to learn more and share our news with your friends? Are you a regular user of facebook, twitter or instagram? Or perhaps you’d be happy to share your story to promote the benefits of solar energy? We’d love digital volunteers all across Australia. Tick this box on the right.
Be an outreach volunteer - Willing to come along to one off events, or do DIY activities in your area to support our campaigns, such as sign up new people, meet with your MP, or organise small local events? By signing up more Solar Citizens, and implementing our campaigns in your community, you are building our power and impact to help us win. At the moment our campaigning is focused in Qld, NSW and SA if you live in these states, tick this box on the right, and we'll help you get started.
Be an office volunteer - Do you live near Sydney, Adelaide or Brisbane and want to help with core activities? Enjoy doing data entry and mailing out campaign materials? These essential activities ensure our campaigns are getting out to the community and doing all that they can. We will be eternally grateful. Tick this box on the right.
Join a Solar Citizens Action Group - Joining a local Action Group is an amazing way to get more active on solar issues and make a difference in your community. If you live in one of the areas below tick this box on the right and we'll help you get started. You can also contact an existing group directly using the details below.
