Action Design Workshop – Online – National
For zoom link and to register (so we have an idea of numbers): https://actionnetwork.org/events/action-design-workshop
Online on Zoom, all rebels welcome. (NVDA Training Assumed but not Required).
Reinvigorating your local group or starting a new affinity group? Ready for Action?
What is the strategic goal of your action? Have you thought about the three classic pillars of XR Actions?
What tactics will best enable you to achieve your goals?
What location, and art, will get across the message or story you want to tell?
The reasons for all of these choices will feed into the narrative of your action.
Join us for an interactive action planning workshop to creatively discuss your action ideas, vision, strategic goals, logistics, safety, legals, roles, and embodying a regenerative culture as we follow a cycle of action, reflection, learning, and planning for more action. Learning from other movements and contexts as well as our own experiences.
Before coming along, please have a read of the XR Actions How-To Guide, and have a think about the questions above. Talk about it with other rebels if you can (and invite them!).

At the core of Extinction Rebellion’s philosophy is nonviolent civil disobedience. We promote civil disobedience and rebellion because we think it is necessary – we are asking people to find their courage and to collectively do what is necessary to bring about change.
We have no other choice. We rebel against the systems that drive us towards extinction. We rebel for the future we want. We rebel because it is our responsibility to act. We have no more time to waste.
Nothing is impossible – we can still write the story we want and we will. We as individuals can make a difference, collectively. We will do this together. Transform the world. Create lasting change. Create a prosperous future for all.
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” – Nelson Mandela
