The science is clear: we face planetary warming, extinction of species, loss of biodiversity, extreme pollution, acidification of waters and destruction of forests. We are heading towards a catastrophe if we do not act. How to deal with this terrifying reality?

In the first part of this talk, we give an overview of the state of the climate crisis and the biodiversity crisis. Everything will be underpinned by scientific insights. You don’t need any prior knowledge.

In the second part, we talk about Extinction Rebellion, a movement of citizens who see that a different approach is needed. What does Extinction Rebellion want to achieve, how do we want to do it, what are our values and principles, and why will this work?

Practical information

Beforehand and/or afterwards there is the opportunity to join for dinner of De Sering’s people’s kitchen (plant-based food based on donation between €2,50 and €7,50). This night there will be an action consultation hour from 8PM to 9PM where you can ask all your questions, see here. Registration is not necessary, but will be appreciated such that we have an estimate how many will attend the talk. You can register via this link.
