Workshop: Extinction Rebellion NVDA Training

#ExtinctionRebellion is a peaceful international movement addressing the climate crisis through mass non-violent direct action (NVDA). Their aim is to achieve structural change in an attempt to reduce the likelihood of human extinction and ecological collapse. This session will seek to familiarise our delegates with the movement’s ideology and culture, by providing an insight into the movement’s key principles of regenerative culture, decentralization and momentum-driven organizing.

NVDA training will teach our delegates de-escalation tactics, knowledge of their rights against police, the legal context in which protests take place, the basics of self-care in the midst of the climate crisis, arrest protocol and more. The aim of this workshop is to empower people to get involved and get motivated!
