The planet is in ecological crisis: we are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction event this planet has experienced. Scientists believe we may have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. This is an emergency.
Extinction Rebellion is an international movement which use non violent civil disobedience to protest against climate breakdown, biodiversity loss and the risk of sociological and ecological collapse.
In Amsterdam we are hosting different events:
1) Public talks : Climate speakers from Extinction Rebellion will share the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, discuss some of the current psychology around climate change, and offer solutions through the study of social movements.
2) Induction meetings:
– brief intro to Extinction Rebellion Amsterdam – aims and principles – explanation of Working Groups – Media and Messaging (managing social and local media coverage), Outreach&Training (connecting XR with other interest groups), Action + Logistics (planning upcoming actions), Ams Regen (organising socials and group culture), Art (preparing the art).
