How to contribute to The Big One
We're planning the biggest climate protest ever seen in the UK and we need an army of volunteers to make it happen! Can you help us?
Everything Extinction Rebellion has done has been built by everyday folk volunteering their time. The amount of time our volunteers contribute directly determines how how big an impact we can have. EVERYONE is encouraged to take on a role for The Big One!
There are two main types of role:
- Join the Support Crew to get involved with tasks on the ground for the Big One. Help people feel safe and connected. Training and support provided. We need LOTS of people in these roles!
- Become a Planner and join a vibrant network of busy ants helping build and weave the action. The work is needed right now, with the roles continuing at least to the end of the action. These roles are remote so you can work online from anywhere in the country.
You can follow one or more of the following routes to finding a role:
The Big One Support Crew
Whether you have a few hours or days to offer for The Big One, there is a role to suit!
