How do University Intrepid Landcare groups start
It can be a pre-lecture preso, or a spark of enthusiasm from a group of keen students that has then led to a university group kicking off. Usually the university Clubs and Societies network is a great place to start. Established groups have pitched the idea of starting their own Intrepid Landcare club, submitted an application, developed a logo and started creating and promoting their own events on and off campus to help recruit student volunteers to go out and start working on cool local Landcare projects.
How do other Intrepid Landcare groups start
Most groups are born out of an Intrepid Landcare Leadership Retreat. Where we work with communities to bring together a group of like-minded peeps, and coach them through what it takes to lead on stuff that matters. How to get clear on what it is that's important, how to take action, and how to bring others in on the journey. But this isn't always the case and not the only way a group can form. Sometimes groups of young people are already clear on their direction and what they want to do, so it's as easy as reaching out to us, taping into our free resources, and getting cracking on creating an awesome network of young people doing cool projects in their community.
