Step 2: Enter all of the event information into the document, and upload an event image.

Step 3: Once completed, you’ll have a chance to see a summary of your event. If you need to make changes, click Back. If all is well, Submit!

a summary of the event is shown, and a red circle indicates where the Submit button is

Step 4: Once your event is submitted, Green Action Centre will need to approve it. We scan for new event submissions weekly, however, if your event is time sensitive, please email gohappy@greenactioncentre.ca to request we review it as soon as possible. 

Step 5: Once the event is approved, you’ll want to include the encouragement to carpool in your event promotion. Here is an example of how we promoted GoManitoba carpooling for a past event:

text reads: "would you like to carpool to this event? Register for free with GoManitoba." The text then directs people to click a link to be taken directly to the event created on GoManitoba.

Need to cancel? If you need to cancel your event, simply open it and click on the 3 dots on the right side of the details. This gives the option to Deactivate Event. 

We see the same summary event page as previously shown, this time the arrow indicates the three dots where the user would click to deactivate their event
