Tell us about your special project idea!
You've got a brilliant project idea to help move the campaign forward. Amazing!
We're thrilled to have you join us. This form should help you identify the details of your proposal and help you think through the entire project from beginning to end.
Remember, the more defined and clear your goals and methods are, the more successful your project will be!
We suggest one or more of the following overall goals:
1. Find Allies
This means getting as many people to indicate their support for the campaign as possible, e.g. by signing the No Tankers petition. We need to know who supports us, and we need to be able to communicate with them on a regular basis. That's where political power comes from. Your special project could seek size by getting as many signatures on the petition as possible, or you could seek diversity by getting unusual allies to sign the petition.
2. Find Leaders
This means finding out which of your local politicians are standing up for our rivers and coast (at the local, provincial and federal level), and which ones aren't. Then your special project could celebrate those who are standing up for our coast or you could put pressure on those who aren't. Basic and powerful democracy!
3. Find Resources
Those on the other side of this struggle have billions of dollars at their disposal. Your special project could help to even the scales by raising money for the cause.
A note on awareness-raising: Raising awareness is great! It is also a means to an end because once you have raised somebody's awareness you then want them to take some kind of useful action. If raised awareness doesn't lead to useful action then it's kind of pointless. Consider how your special project will take people from awareness all the way through to action. Give your audience something to do.
