Extinction Rebellion Worldwide
Online Gathering & Skill-share
8 pm to 11 pm (UTC) 6 March 2021
“We set our mission on what is necessary…“
Everything we love is at stake
We need mass civil disobedience in 2021. And this requires thousands of people to mobilise, organise, and get good at it. All around the world, amazing people are developing great ways to stand up and we need to support one another.
An alliance of dedicated XR members in different countries are creating this event so we can come together to celebrate the vital work we are doing, to enjoy great talks and testimonies, and discover concrete tactics that work in a range of workshops.
We seek to reinforce our valued XR culture of welcoming, open organisation. We welcome everyone to come along to contribute and learn. Based on the success of this event, we will hold more regular mobilization events and create other online spaces to support all other aspects of our work.
You can contribute by volunteering to present or help facilitate a workshop. You can specify how you would like to support rebels during this meeting in the registration form. Also, tell us what is necessary, what workshops would you most like to participate in?
Getting people involved:
The fundamentals of recruitment, practical things to do and set routines, building up your groups: local, special interest, and groups planning to take nonviolent action.
Getting good at public speaking, meetings, and rebel cafes, ways to get things done, how to do joyful law-breaking, how to support each other and avoid feeling you have to stop.
To be empowered and take the initiative, how to do quick decision making, creating groups which work together well: dealing with overlap activities and roles.
How to organise people, how to raise some cash, learning from other movements, e.g. Black Lives Matter, Getting up to date on the latest science.
Getting ready for the future:
Creating communities which support people, the effectiveness of nonviolent action and more.
This is just for starters! Give your ideas and proposals while registering.

Why XR World?
After 500 people recently participated in an international XR open zoom session on Visioning, many have expressed a desire for more opportunities to connect.
XR World is an opportunity to bring us as a movement together with like-minded friends to listen and learn from one another.
We all know there is no time to lose. If we allow the global carbon-capital death system to continue during and after COVID, our societies will collapse.
Because the world matters.
RSVP information (except the email address that you provide for the meeting link) is publicly accessible and part of the larger conversation many have asked for.
