What's the talk about?

Cimate change is happening faster than expected and yet global greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise. The International Panel on Climate Change conservatively warned that we must halve global greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 or else face catastrophic consequences. Extinction Rebellion are an international protest group who are using non-violent direct action to demand that governments shift towards a zero emissions, sustainable society. 

We are not a body of experts offering solutions (although we all have our own ideas on this), rather a movement that is dedicated to holding our governments to account. They have a responsibility to act now to prevent unprecedented global chaos. Come and find out about the latest climate change science, the power of protest and the principles of Extinction Rebellion.

Jack is a representative of Extinction Rebellion and a PhD student at the University of Leicester.
