Heading for Extinction and what to do about it

This talk will be in English.

“Our house is on fire”. This metaphor was used by Greta Thunberg to describe the severe state our world is in right now – but sadly, that metaphor has become a reality in places like Australia and the Amazon rain forest. The full extent of the climate crisis may seem like a problem that’s too big to fix, but it doesn’t have to be. You can become part of a solution.

You are invited to a special talk called “Heading for Extinction — and what to do about it” on Monday 17th of February at 16.00 at the Van Hall Larenstein University in Velp. This talk is organised by the Arnhem/Nijmegen local group of Extinction Rebellion (XR). We are a group of climate activists advocating for a fair transition to a sustainable economy and society. In the talk you will learn about the science behind the climate and ecological crisis we’re facing, as well as XR’s strategy of mass civil disobedience and what you can do to help. After the talk there is time for questions, discussion and socializing!

We look forward to seeing you there. For more information, you can visit our website: extinctionrebellion.nl
