Community Weekend for new rebels

Are you interested in learning more about Extinction Rebellion during the Community Weekend, but not sure where to start? There are many workshops and activities for new rebels on the program and that might make it hard to choose.

Introduction

If you can, make sure to come to the introduction. It’s on the program every day:

During this introduction you will learn important things about Extinction Rebellion and get advice about other things you can do during the weekend as a new rebel.

If you join the introduction, you won’t need this page anymore!

But if you really can’t get to the introduction, then you can find some advice on this page.

 

Different types of rebels

The most important thing is that you enjoy yourself. Not just during the weekend, but with everything you do in Extinction Rebellion. That’s good for your health and the health of the movement.

On this page you’ll find advice for five “types” of rebels. Most people prefer doing a bit of this and a bit of that. So take this advice with a grain of salt and above all, do what sounds fun and interesting to you!

P.s. all the adresses are in Amsterdam.
