We encourage local groups to fundraise for their group. It can be a fun team building activity! You could setup your own crowdfunder, block print at events and actions, sell XR books, host a film or a club night to raise money.
This is a detailed diagram of how the UK XR Organisation works – click through for roles and mandates.
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.
Our Self-Organising System is based on the XR UK Constitution.
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.
