That’s all happening at the Concorde 2 music venue and Sea Lanes.

Both days will give us the chance to develop ideas, tactics and skills, so we can all can play our part in the upcoming Extinction Rebellion International Rebellion, which comes to London and other cities around the world on 7th October. Get details of the London actions.
Born in 2018, Extinction Rebellion (XR) is made up of ordinary people no longer prepared to sit by and watch the planet burn. Its rebels and campaigners are drawn from all ages and all walks of life.
Every voice on every action counts;

You can be a part of this joyful, life-changing campaign, be it as a cyclist, steward, wellbeing expert, press officer, cook, knitter or painter, photographer, film-maker – or if you just want your voice to be heard.
Bring your family and friends along and join this most important of campaigns.
We all have a role to play.
Are you ready?

QTIPOC, PoC and LGBTQI
There will be a QTIPOC, PoC and LGBTQI Regen Safe Space on Saturday 14th 11am-4pm at BHASVIC. Please book your free place if you identify as any of the above as spaces are limited and we'd like to get an idea of numbers. To support as an ally, please share widely and share the love by respecting the need for a safe separate space.
