Online – Heading for Extinction (and what to do about it) – Talk
August 14 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Sunday 14th August 10:00-11:30 AEST
For everyone everywhere interested in Extinction Rebellion this talk, ‘Heading for Extinction (and what to do about it)’ is your entry point. We are facing climate and ecological catastrophe, and time is running out. Our political system is broken and our leaders are failing to protect us.
Find out about Extinction Rebellion, an international movement using non-violent mass civil disobedience as a tried and tested way to force governments to take the action that is needed.
‘Heading for Extinction and what to do about it’ is the first of two introductory talks which generally precede the Non-Violent Direct Action/Civil Disobedience training. These introductory talks and NVDA training will help you get involved with the XR movement. The second talk, XR Basics, introduces you to Extinction Rebellion, how it works, what its aims, principles and values are, and how you can get involved. NVDA training is for those who want to participate in mass actions.
‘Heading for Extinction and what to do about it’ provides an up-to-date and honest picture of what is causing the climate emergency, and what needs to happen, urgently, to prevent the worst of climate disasters. There are opportunities for questions and discussion.
Come and explore how you can be part of the rebellion, starting now! All states and countries welcome.
