Shared Calendars

In order to have an overview of what’s going on in XR London and all of XR London’s working and local groups, and to avoid scheduling conflicts, all coordinators of London working and local groups are urged to create and regularly update a Google calendar for their events and share it with the XR London office and the other groups.

Find the How-to for shared calendars here.

Strategy for Local Groups

You are wondering how to come up with a strategy for your local group? First, it’s important to get every rebel in your group skilled up on XR’s DNA and Theories of Change. You could then organise a People’s Assembly to design your strategy.
