ACTION DESIGN TRAINING

Extinction Rebellion is an actions-led movement. Let’s get back to XR’s roots and use actions to cut through business as usual and lead people to rebel. This workshop gives people the tools to design sexy, crazy, moving, provoking actions and looks to empower people in all walks of life to rebel. Let’s get naughty.
This workshop is vital pre-rebellion, teaching rebels how to design and carry out actions, with high impact and effectiveness in the spirit of Extinction Rebellion. Learn about the key principles of civil disobedience, how XR’s principles and values guide action design, and important advice for carrying out empowering actions whilst under lockdown and social distancing.

OPPRESSION, MOVEMENT BUILDING AND OUR RELATIONSHIPS AS ACTIVISTS

We are members of XR looking at how movements can be divided when oppression goes unaddressed, offering practical tools to heal these divisions which affect our relationships as activists.

This workshop will address the importance of understanding the structural nature of oppressions (such as racism, sexism, classism, ableism, the oppression of young people, …), as well as doing personal healing work – both of which are necessary if we are to work together effectively in a united movement.
