Kingston University Extinction Rebellion

“We are facing an unprecedented global emergency. Life on Earth is in crisis: scientists agree we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown, and we are in the midst of a mass extinction of our own making”.


XR (extinction rebellion) is a do-it-together movement; consisting of people from every walk of life, who are wanting to make a difference to the world, for the better, for their children.


XR is an international, apolitical network using non-violent direct action to persuade governments to act on the Climate and Ecological Emergency. The three XR demands are as follows:

  1. TELL THE TRUTH - governments must tell the truth and work with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.
  2. ACT NOW - In order to halt biodiversity loss, we must reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2025.
  3. BEYOND POLITICS - Government must create and be led by the decisions of a citizens’ assembly* on climate and ecological justice. 

*Similar to Jury service, members spend time deliberating in small, facilitated groups and then they draft and vote on recommendations. Citizens' assemblies are conducted by non-partisan organisations under independent oversight. They are transparent, inclusive and effective.


Anyone and everyone is welcome to join the KU XR society. Whatever you study, your presence is needed and wanted.
