We are facing an unprecedented global emergency. The government has failed to protect us. To survive, it’s going to take everything we’ve got. – Extinction Rebellion
Extinction Rebellion, sometimes shortened as XR, is an international social movement that aims to drive radical change through nonviolent resistance, in order to avert climate breakdown and minimise the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse.
Supported by Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Greta Thunberg, George Monbiot and many other influential personalities, this movement might actually have the potential to get us out of this mess alive – so better take the chance to get to know them!
Tonight, the representatives of the Movement here in Denmark will come and share all the essentials:
- What is Extinction Rebellion!?
- Why and how did it start?
- Why is it necessary?
- How far did the movement spread until now?
- Which methods are being used and why?
- What is the goal?
After this, XR will also facilitate a small workshop activity presenting the current working groups and their functions.
There will be an open discussion after the talk, where you will get the chance to ask questions, challenge perspectives and get involved into the movement.
