Workshop hosted by Dave Rastovich, plus other Patagonia-backed initiatives this Saturday at the Byron Bay Surf Festival.

We are entering an age where social and environmental activism will play an ever more important role in securing people’s freedoms and in the protection of wild places. Join us for an afternoon with some of Australia’s leading grassroots activists, who will discuss what being an activist today means, and the skills and tools needed to run successful campaigns both big and small.
Every participant will receive a copy of “Tools for Grassroots activists” book.
