Principle 5: We value reflection and learning: following a cycle of action, reflection, learning, and planning for more action. Learning from other movements and contexts as well as our own experiences.

We never know how things will change, so we try to stay open and flexible, to experiment and to learn from what we do. This helps us work out how to be as effective as possible. We value feedback and aim to both give and receive it with grace. We share our experiences so we can learn from one another.


You will find a huge range of free talks and trainings on offer in XR - all are listed in the Directory of Talks and Training.

Some aim to help you navigate XR, some to support you in taking action, some to explain the science and yet others to help you grow in skills and confidence.

Talks and training on offer include:

  • Welcome to XR - a starting point for new joiners (contains many things that are also in this Toolkit book)
  • Nonviolent Direct Action (NVDA) training - core training for attending actions
  • Know Your Rights (KYR) training - Core information for attending actions.
  • Foundation Programme - an in-depth series of trainings aimed at helping people take on a role in a working group. A thorough grounding in who we are and how we work with personal help and support built in throughout.
