Eco-shout is a catalyst to action for environmental and social justice and a sustainable future - and anyone who wants to get more involved in their environment and community.
Whether you want to find out what's happening around Australia, join in an event or campaign, find like-minded people to live with, volunteer or work in a social change organisation or launch your own campaign, Eco-shout will give you the info and connections you need to get involved. Find out how you can join in.
For those already active in the environment and social justice movement - Eco-shout belongs to you, it is your tool. Use it to promote your events and campaigns, get people involved and get your message out. Find out how to promote your campaign.
Eco-shout belongs to the grassroots community and can become as powerful as we want to make it. Imagine if everyone who cared about people and the planet, if every environment and social justice group, told their friends and members about Eco-shout. We'd become our own peak organisation with a booming voice for people and the plant. Want to be part of growing a movement? Come on then.
Sarah Day founded Eco-shout in 2004 because she didn't want to work for evil and no one could tell her what to do with herself. After ten years working in community development, including a three year stint managing Australia's only community owned self-managed building, she now spends her time writing and webbing for environment and social justice groups; communing with wildlife; frolicking in nature and campaigning - with particular but not exclusive love - for the protection of Australia's wildlife and old growth forests.
Kath Angus has been working in youth and environmental organisations since before she even finished her philosophy degree - starting with Live and Learn, an organisation that supports environmental and community projects in the Asia Pacific. Now she does the same thing, but a lot more philosophically. Kath contributes to community campaigns on climate change (especially 350.org), stands between trees and bulldozers in the Central Highlands and manages Beyond Zero Emissions's Energy Freedom program. Kath aspires to be a professional contrarian and an unprofessional surfer.
Ani Loriente has many many many years experience managing the books for social justice organisations including Ross House Association and now Housing for the Aged Action Group. She is fierce and notoriously hard to photograph, but we'll get her soon.
In 2011, Eco-shout incorporated and these excellent people were there to make it happen: Tania Lee (committee member), Amber Moore, Nikki-Fay Baxter, Kristin Godby (committee member), James Grant, Nathalie Michel, Katie Stoll, French Will, Heidi Peart, Annie Sloman, Claire McCall and Nate.
