UCL Quad WC1E 6BT
Extinction Rebellion London
On Friday 20 September, young people in the UK who have been striking for the climate are asking adults to join them.
UCL has agreed that staff are entitled to stop work and protest in solidarity for 30 minutes at 12:30, in addition to any lunch break.
UCU is calling everyone in the Quad from 12:30. They will be setting up at 12, and talking about the issues that unite us.
At 1pm Climate speakers from UCL & Extinction Rebellion will deliver the talk ‘Heading for Extinction (and what to do about it)’ which was written by UCL academic Professor Kate Jeffery (Cognitive Neurosience). You will hear about the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, some of the current psychology around climate change, and discuss solutions through the study of social movements.
