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 in the lead up to the Spring Rebellion at the Box Factory from 1-5pm.

Dates: July 25th; Aug 22nd

1-2pm: Introductory session for new people plus spaces for working groups, affinity groups and project groups to meet + art activities & coffee/chats.

2-3pm: Whole group facilitated discussion on topic of strategic importance to build our understanding of the diversity of thought among rebels and build agreements.

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

3:30pm-4:30pm: Open Space for people to self-organise actions/next steps. This will be an opportunity for individuals, working groups & affinity groups to bring a project/action/idea to the whole group. 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.

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 and catering.
