Want to know more about the climate and ecological crisis, and what you can do about it?

The scientific community is in consensus that we are in the midst of a climate and ecological crisis.

Backed by rigorous research, they warn us that we may have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. This is an unprecedented global emergency. Our children and our nation, in fact all nations, face grave risk.

Weather events that would once have been considered extreme are becoming the new norm. On top of that, the planet is experiencing the sixth mass extinction event in its history. Except this time we are causing it. But that means that we can prevent it.

In this public talk, Extinction Rebellion Brighton will share the latest climate and ecological science, lay bare the consequences of ignoring it, and then offer a possible way forward through the study of previous social movements.

We will aim to keep the talk under an hour to allow time for questions, some group activity and then an opportunity to speak to existing Extinction Rebellion members about how you can get involved.

Everyone is welcome and entry is free, but we would appreciate donations on the day towards venue hire costs.

The venue has disabled parking and toilet facilities. If Extinction Rebellion Brighton can make this event more accessible for you in any way, please email xrbrightongather@yahoo.com and we will do all we can to accommodate specific needs.
