First of all, it expands the movement. Your personal participation provides more might, greater recognition and support for our overarching goal – which is essentially to save the planet, starting with Orillia.
Secondly, you help ensure that things get done. Projects, programs and messages get delivered. By giving some of your time to a sector committee or to a project or event, you are playing a vital role in getting our message out and expanding our reach across the community.
And thirdly, it’s the right thing to do. This is a critical cause, one that has impact for everyone – now and into the future. If you want to avoid the encroaching consequences of climate change, then please get involved. Ultimately, everyone’s participation will be needed.
Participating can be as simple as signing a petition or writing letters to your local government representatives – letting them know how important this cause is to you and your family.
Or you may choose to get more involved – take a more hands-on role, perhaps on a sector team, or offer your time, services and talent to the Board. There is a wide range of volunteering options listed below.

In addition to playing a key role in helping Sustainable Orillia expand this critical movement across our community, volunteering for Sustainable Orillia is an opportunity to learn more, first-hand, about the climate change crisis and to participate in doing your bit with like-minded neighbours and friends.

Good question. ‘Members’ are members – they have made a financial donation to Sustainable Orillia and consequently are deemed ‘members’. ‘Members’ may also be volunteers in that they may make a donation of both their time and money.
‘Volunteers’ are not asked or required to make a financial donation to Sustainable Orillia. They are active in ‘making things happen.’ However, the majority of our volunteers are members and specifically, Sector Chairs and Board of Directors must be ‘member.’ Individual donations can be for whatever amount you want and there is no minimum.
There are a number of ways to submit/share your suggestions and ideas with Sustainable Orillia. Using e-mail, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact any of our board members or sector chairs directly. Someone will get back to you as quickly as we can.
