Climate science and what to do about heading for extinction.
DOORS OPEN AT 6:00 -talk begins at 6:30pm
This public talk has been given hundreds of times in the UK and was the main tool in increasing the numbers that have stood up to rebel. We would like that to happen here in Canada.
We will share the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, discuss some of the current psychology around climate change denial, and offer solutions through the study of social movements.
Note – we are not trying to “save the planet”…we are at the point where we need to save ourselves. The Earth itself will go on…the issue is whether we as humans and all other species will be here too.
To learn more about XRNS, click here for an intro letter, and sign up if the movement speaks to you.
There will be an opportunity for folks to talk with one another and meet others who share your concerns + Q & A.
This is an emergency.
We need to build a mass movement that is prepared to accept what is happening and act accordingly. We need rapid change. We need to rebel. – Extinction Rebellion
Check out some of the people who are endorsing XR:
- Vandana Shiva, Naomi Klein, Noam Chomsky, Chris Packham, Lily Cole, Bill McKibben, Dr Rowan Williams and Bill Ripple are part of 100 people from around the globe who have signed an open letter calling on concerned global citizens to rise up and organise against current complacency on the ecological and climate emergency
There will be a donation jar at the event to help cover costs.
