Grow the Rebellion - September All-In Meeting

Start: Sunday, September 26, 2021 1:00 PM

End: Sunday, September 26, 2021 5:00 PM



NEW TO EXTINCTION REBELLION: Please come to the 1pm session to hear about who we are as a movement, why we use civil disobedience as a strategy and ways you can be involved.

The purpose of this gathering is to meet face-to-face to share our thoughts, concerns and ideas, building agreements on strategies, tactics and actions. Having a space to connect and inspire each other is so essential to a self-organising movement. It is through this connection and communication we can bring our collective intelligence together to make our best decisions.

These gatherings will be held on the 4th Sunday of each month at the Box Factory from 1-5pm.

1-1:30pm: Introductory session for new people plus spaces for affinity groups and project groups to have a quick check-in. Get organised to meet with those you are actively collaborating with and prepare proposals for the Open Space part of the session.

1:30-2pm: Check-In and sharing circle: Being a decentralised movement, things happen locally, nationally and internationally that only some of us get the hear about. This circle will give us the opportunity to hear from anyone who has knowledge about XR from the spaces they have spent time in that may be of interest to us all. So if you are a link into local, national or international goings-on... please share!

2-3 pm: Open Space Session One for people to self-organise actions/next steps. This will be an opportunity to bring a project/action/idea to the whole group or continue working on an exisiting action. People will then self-select which project/action/idea they want to give energy too as we break into small groups to get into the work needed to bring the ideas to fruition.

3-3:30pm Afternoon tea (and organising for open space)

3:30pm-4:30pm: Open Space Session Two because we have so many ideas!!

4:30-5pm: Feedback from open space, invitations into work, celebration and close.

Throughout the session art activities will be available to engage in. This might include screen printing, block printing, flag-making, banner/placard painting, rock painting etc. depending on interest and need.

Please register as this will greatly help with planning.
