An Introduction to Extinction Rebellion (XR) - who we are, how we are organised, what we do - with a Cornish flavour!
At this Introduction we will:
-Provide information about what XR is, and how XR works.
-Give you a taste of XR culture and how we do things.
-Give you the chance to go away and decide whether or not XR is a movement you want to be involved with
We will discuss
-Where did XR come from? What is civil disobedience & direct action?
-What is the extinction rebellion about? What do we want?
-What are our principles and values? What brings us together?
-How are we organised? What are working groups and affinity groups?
-How you can learn more
There is no commitment to further involvement but you will have a chance to explore the many ways you could get involved and what would suit you.
After booking for this event you will receive a confirmation email with details of how to access the Zoom. The event is free but you are very welcome to make a donation when you book. We hope to see you there!
This event is part of a whole host of online talks and training sessions that Extinction Rebellion Cornwall are running in the lead up to the Emergency Rebellion. Starting on August 28th, we will be joining a UK-wide wave of action to call attention to the overwhelming urgency of the Climate and Ecological Emergency.
