Climate Change: Heading for Extinction and what to do about it

The planet is in ecological crisis: We are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction event this planet has experienced. Scientists believe we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. This is an emergency.

In this public talk, climate speakers from Extinction Rebellion will share the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, discuss some of the current psychology around climate change, and offer solutions through the study of social movements.

Citizens’ Assembly Talk

In the UK, Extinction Rebellion’s third demand is that government must create and be led by the decisions of a citizens’ assembly on climate and ecological justice.

Decades of corporate lobbying and party politics have led to a climate and ecological emergency that poses an unprecedented existential threat to humanity and all life on Earth  “politics as usual” is no longer an option.

A Citizens’ Assembly provides us, the people, with a way to decide what’s best for our future, even if that requires radical changes in the present. Moreover, because they are informed and democratic, the Citizens’ Assembly’s decisions will provide political cover and public pressure for politicians to set aside the usual politicking and do the right thing.

Learn all about Citizens’ Assemblies in this talk.

Non-Violent Direct Action (NVDA) Training

Extinction Rebellion is a peaceful international movement addressing the climate crisis through non-violent direct action (NVDA) to achieve radical change in order to minimise the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse.

In NVDA training you will find out how to take part in Extinction Rebellion actions. The training will cover the practice of non-violent techniques: showing you how to de-escalate tense situations, how to interact with the police, what to do if you get arrested and much more.

We also offer Non Violent Communication, Facilitation, Finance, Police Liaison, XR’s DNA, Action Design, Tech for Action, De-escalation, Media & Messaging, Regenerative Culture activities and Oppression, Movement Building & Our Relationship as Activists Workshop trainings.
