Welcome to XR

Want to do something that makes a difference in the biggest crisis humankind currently faces? Then this talk is for you.

Welcome to XR is the key introductory session where you can learn more about what Extinction Rebellion is, what we do and how you can get involved.

This session covers:

  • What is the Extinction Rebellion about? What do we want?
  • What is NVDA and why do we use it?
  • What are our principles and values? What brings us together?
  • How are we organised? How can you get involved?

UK Wide sessions are held over zoom.
Your local group may hold their own in-person sessions. You can find out what is coming up near you by using the XRUK Calendar.


Online Welcome to XR talks are held every Tuesday at 7pm.

The workshop lasts 1.5 hours, and then we allow 30 minutes (20.30 - 21.00) for questions and discussion at the end.

This workshop will take place on Zoom. If you haven’t used Zoom before, check out this short tutorial.
