Community Building for Friends Groups

Sunday 26 November from 10:30 to 16:00

Wettenhall volunteers 16 9 600

Building a community to look after your bushland is the secret to success!

Come to our workshop on Sunday 26 November, learn from the best and share experiences with other bushcare groups.

The Workshop

You will learn the theory and practice of ‘asset mapping’ for community building and gain practical skills and strategies for your Friends group


This workshop is tailored to bushland Friends groups and complements UBC’s Volunteer Recruitment Guide published earlier this year. We encourage you to come along with another person from your group so that you can immediately translate what you learn into useful ideas to take home to your group.

Our Facilitator

PK2 30507559004 24cb4b372e sqWe are really excited to have Peter Kenyon lead this workshop. You can read more about his extensive community building work at his website: Bank of Ideas. Peter is a community enthusiast. He works with groups and governments across Australia and world-wide to facilitate fresh and creative ways to stimulate community building, from the micro to the macro level.

Peter is convinced the only way to develop communities is from the inside out and to focus on the positive assets all around us. Peter has been recognised for his work with a Medal of the Order of Australia as well as being 2017 WA Senior Australian of the Year.
