Ideas for Action
Let’s take this offline and onto the streets and parks. Here are some ideas of things you can do and if you want to get in contact with others, sign up to volunteer below:
- Placard Your Park – So many Aucklanders don’t know what is being sprayed in their parks and some still think they live in a non-chemical legacy area. Put some placards up around your park to let people know the dangers.
- Spray Free Streets – get together with your neighbors and add them all to the No Spray Register. Put a poster up on your street sign that says “Spray Free Zone”. Imagine if spray trucks had to skip every second street?
- Bee Creative – Dress up as a bee at your next local council meeting and tell the story of how Glyphosate damages bee populations. Get your neighbors to dress in hazmat suits to tell your community about what Glyphosate really means. Make a nuisance of yourself on spray day: Play hopscotch, a Ring a Ring o’ Roses or have a skipping competition in your hazmat suit so they can’t spray.
There are a wide range of roles, and all support is valued, even if it’s just a share on Facebook or Twitter. This also means we can get in touch with you ASAP to let you know about what we’re planning. If you’ve got any special skills or ideas you want to tell us about, get in contact with us through our Facebook or Email Address we’re keen to hear!
