be inspired

You are here

Where to start? Many people have found inspiration by joining a group as an 'observer' and then moved on to a more active role.

Groups  welcome members, even non active ones, so don't be scared.

Are you put off buying an electric vehicle because of the lack of charging points?

Extinction Rebellion (XR) Shrewsbury

Are you concerned about the growing climate and ecological crisis yet carbon emissions continue to rise and little is being done to stop run away climate change? Then join with other concerned XR members to engage in acts of non-violent, peaceful civil disobedience to demand that the:
1) Government tell the truth about the climate and wider ecological crisis, reverse inconsistent policies and work alongside the media to communicate the truth to citizens.
2) Government enact legally binding policies to reduce carbon emissions in the UK to net zero by 2025 and reduce consumption levels.
3) Government help form a national Citizens Assembly to oversee changes, as part of creating a democracy fit for purpose.
