You can join Dodo whenever you want!

Do you live in an area without Dodo’s local chapter?
- Contact the director or chairman, who will come or then find a volunteer to come and introduce Dodo and its projects in your area.
- Agree a meeting with this volunteer. Getting to know each other will advance things far more than an email.
- Invite to the meeting everyone interested in local solutions to global environmental issues and dodo-like environmental impact. Keep in mind that Dodo is an environmental organization.
- As soon as possible, come to get to know other dodos, e.g., at the annual org-days.
- As soon as possible, get started with a project. A common goal commits people to the activity.
- Keep in contact with the director or chairman about your progress.
- Note that need for a single individual project is a bad reason to start a local chapter! Dodo stands for working together as a community. Dodo is not an account agency.
