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. This short interactive talk will look at the latest climate science on where our planet is heading and introduce the philosophy and rationale behind Extinction Rebellion’s actions. This is a really good opportunity to meet those who are involved in XR locally, and to understand more about what the group gets up to (it’s not just about blocking roads). It’s also a great way to meet others who are also concerned about climate change, and who are offering a bit of time and energy to accelerate positive change. The talk is being held on Zoom.
