The talk:

Extinction Rebellion (XR) has grabbed headlines thanks to their peaceful protests in London, England and across the world. This talk is an introduction to XR and highlights the emergency that we are facing, the urgency with which we must act in order to save humanity.

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.

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. Canada has one of the worst records in world when it comes to pollution, waste and environmental destruction - it is up to us all to change that.

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.

There will be a donation jar at the event to help cover costs of the rebellion, including banners, flags, signs and stickers.
