How do we keep in touch with fellow Stewards
Before, during and after the events we use several chats:
Big Stewards Chat: A Telegram chat for all XR Steward Volunteers. Chat, queries & call-outs
London Stewards: A Telegram chat for Stewards living in London. Chat, queries & call-outs
We also use more secure Signal communications for Lead Stewards. You will need to be verified by someone from a Known XR Team or Supporter Organisation to be added to these.
These Signals are used to communicate with attendees at an event or action
This signal is used to communicate (silently) with other stewards (try and remember to always be looking round and watching your stewarding colleagues to make sure you keep in contact)
Mic Check: when you raise your arm first to get silence then repeat "Mic Check, Mic check", the crowd repeats this "Mic Check, Mic check". Then you give your short message, the crowd repeats it. Then loop again
You can reach the Stewarding Team at Stewarding@extinctionrebellion.uk
At the moment, these materials are primarily aimed at General and Lead Stewards for The Big One, London April 21-24 2023.
