Extinction Rebellion

The science is clear: we are facing an unprecedented global emergency. 2020 calls for courage, dedication, and bold leadership in all forms if humanity is to meet this emergency with a proportionate response. Extinction Rebellion (XR) is an activist-led global network of non-violent civil disobedience, creativity and regenerative culture, operating to address the climate and ecological emergency. Through our innovative, groundbreaking climate activism, we aim to awaken society to the scale of the emergency and demand governments and other institutions take the bold action necessary to avert it. Our decentralized model of activism, governed by our 10 principles and values, has successfully shifted the Overton window for change—moving the conversation to reimagine the possible scale of change. To date, we are comprised of over 1100 groups in more than 60 countries around the world
