Extinction Rebellion Talk Heading Extinction

Extinction Rebellion is an international group of concerned citizens who engage in nonviolent direct action- driving radical reforms in governmental policy in order to address the urgency of the ecological crisis we are facing. We are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction, with about 200 species becoming extinct each day. Humans cannot continue to violate the fundamental laws of nature or of science with impunity. If we continue on our current path, the future for our species is bleak. Therefore, we must work to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2025 to avoid catastrophic climate change and protect the diversity of earth‘s Fragile ecosystems. Extinction Rebellion Birmingham will be holding the talk for the second time for those who missed it. It is entitled: Heading for extinction and what to do about it.

The talk will outline the issues surrounding climate change and biodiversity loss, and how we can use our feelings of despair constructively to overwrite the cycle of ignorance and inactivity present in the policy making sphere. At the event you will be able to find out more about our movement and the activities we have plannedVoluntary contributions are gratefully accepted on the door to help cover room hire costs.
