We’re really happy to see you here. Who are we? We are you.
Extinction Rebellion is an International movement of people whose sole purpose is to save our planet from the damage humanity has caused over centuries and decades of industrialisation and consumerism. We believe we can save our world and all that live in it by working together.
At the core of Extinction Rebellion’s philosophy is nonviolent civil disobedience. We promote civil disobedience and rebellion because we think it is necessary - we are asking people to find their courage and to collectively do what is necessary to bring about change.
The structure aims to empower anybody to act as part of XR, so long as they agree to follow our ten core principles. We are seeking a balance between being able to act quickly in response to fast-changing situations and being able to integrate the collective wisdom of multiple perspectives when needed.
