The Big One was a peaceful environmental and social justice protest organised in London by XR in collaboration with over 200 organisations. It may well have inspired you to learn more about getting involved with Extinction Rebellion. The organisation’s “demands” on the UK government have now significantly increased, with threats of disruptions to the public on the agenda again.
The next XR Foundation Programme runs from Monday 8th May and Thursday 1st June, 2023. It is a mix of live Zoom sessions, videos and e-learning.
Here is their information: The full-length course requires up to 9 hours a week and the light course up to 4 hours a week. Don’t worry if you can’t keep up as you can always transfer to a later course.
The full course includes:
- XR strategy and structure
- Introduction to Nonviolent Direct Action
- Know your legal rights
- Meeting facilitation skills
- XR Communication tools
- Boundary-setting, resilience, how we support one another
If you are part of another campaigning movement, the course offers transferable skills and knowledge too. Joining XR is not necessary!
