Extinction Rebellion (XR) is a peaceful movement addressing the climate crisis through non-violent direct action (NVDA).
Life as we know it is falling apart. Extreme weather events and mass species extinction cover the globe. The government has failed to implement radical change despite 30 years clear warning from scientists. It’s time to rebel. Join Extinction Rebellion for our introduction to non-violent direct action, both theory and practice.
This free training will introduce you to the XR movement and the NVDA techniques used in many of our actions. It’s a good place to start for anyone wanting to get involved with XR for the first time!
This training will take two hours.
You’ll also have a chance to meet new members and there may be a chance to form affinity groups. Affinity groups are made up of 8-12 people with a similar ‘affinity’ for the types of action and levels of civil disobedience they’re willing to take part in. Within your affinity group, you’ll be able to organise and support each other through future XR actions!
Affinity groups can also be formed at New Members Inductions and General Meetings.
The training takes 3 hours, so please eat beforehand and bring your own refreshments.Training is free, but please bring along a donation, if you can, for venue hire costs and travel expenses of trainers.
