Extinction Rebellion is a peaceful international movement addressing the climate crisis through non violent direct action (NVDA) to achieve radical change in order in minimise the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse.

In this NVDA training you will find out how to take part in Extinction Rebellion actions. The training will cover the practice of non-violent techniques: showing you how to de-escalate tense situations, how to interact with the police, what to do if you get arrested and much more.

At the end, if you want, we will help you create affinity groups: groups of 8-12 people who work together to support each other on the day of the action.

The training takes a few hours so bring food / feel free to bring vegan snacks to share.
