Lambeth working groups

This is a list of all of the WhatsApp and Telegram chats for the various working groups that make up Extinction Rebellion Lambeth. Feel free to join any that you’re interested in, we’d love to hear from you.

Never used Telegram? Telegram is a messaging app, very similar to WhatsApp, that’s used in particular for the larger groups due to the much higher limit on group participants. It also has a polling feature which has proved useful in gauging the general opinion in the group, or in XR speak, conducting ‘temperature checks’. You can download Telegram from both the Apple and Android app stores.

Please note that in order to join the groups through the links on this page you need to either be on a smartphone with the correct messaging app installed or, in the case the WhatsApp chats, have WhatsApp downloaded to your desktop. If you have neither of things then head over to our events page to find when the next general meeting is – there will be someone there who can help you join the right working group (or groups!) for you.

Every group is a safe, inclusive space. To ensure this continues we ask that everyone follows three rules:

  • Be kind and courteous
  • No hate speech or bullying
  • We are non prescriptive group – please do not tell people what they should think or do

XR Lambeth Broadcast

This group is for announcements, posting 8am-8pm only, and is perfect if you just want to stay updated with events. There's no discussion in this group which makes it unintrusive, focussed and a great way to keep your eye what's happening in the world of XR Lambeth.
