Power Up training weekend hosted by Friends of the Earth 1-3 July 2011

Learn about Localism and how to campaign

Friday 6pm - Sunday 4pm

Details: www.foe.co.uk/news/power_up_27151.html

Power Up returns to share our knowledge and understanding about environmental justice, rights and the planning system.

Power Up is a unique training weekend designed to help you get the knowledge, confidence and contacts to use the legal and planning system to make a difference where you live.

Power up will leave you feeling inspired and energised - ready to apply new skills to your local issues

Who is Power Up for?

You don't have to be an expert - whether you're already involved in a local campaign or completely new to campaigning. Just as long as you're interested in making your area a fairer, cleaner and healthier place - then Power Up is for you.

How will Power Up help you and your community?

Power Up will give you:

· Campaign knowledge and practical tools to share with your community.

· The confidence to speak up and get involved in making decisions.

This is particularly important because of the Government's proposed changed to the planning system in the Localism Bill.

Where: Queen Mary and Westfield University, Tower Hamlets

Cost: all places are subsidised by Friends of the Earth. FoE asks for a contribution to help cover accommodation and meals for the weekend.

Full residential place £75. (Free concessionary places are available for unwaged: Unemployed/ Students/ Pensioners)
