The Australian government is worsening the climate emergency, which means it's up to Extinction Rebellion to take peaceful, direct action to get them to act now!

Non-violent direct action or peaceful civil disobedience has a long history of success in achieving large change, from the Indian Independence Movement to the Civil Rights Movement.

At this two part online workshop, you'll become empowered with these skills, so you can join Extinction Rebellion in taking climate action now.

The training covers the principles of non-violent direct action, why it works, the definition of non-violence, a legal rights briefing, and role-plays to get you ready for common peaceful civil disobedience scenarios.
