Welcome to the Rebel Toolkit!


The Resources to Support Extinction Rebellion

A place to share the valuable work of all XR Rebels!

This place is for any Rebel to share their own original work
We hope using this space will connect rebels from all around the UK
and demonstrate their creativity - without the need of additional approval

Please help yourself to any of the resources, they are all freely available
To find out how to add new resources, go to the Shelf called Using This Toolkit
NB A few items here are curated by the UK Communities Circle they have this icon shield-icon-16-(1).png
