We look forward to welcoming Extinction Rebellion to bluedot to explore the current climate crisis that our pale blue dot is facing right now. Climate breakdown and ecological collapse are a direct existential threat to us all. We are already in the 6th mass extinction of life on Earth with 200 species lost every day.
Every month, there is more extreme weather - floods, wildfires, droughts, and crop failures which could soon lead to famine. Hundreds of thousands of lives are lost to climate breakdown every year.
On October 31st 2018, Extinction Rebellion declared themselves in open rebellion against governments for their criminal inaction on tackling climate breakdown and ecological collapse.
Since then, hundreds of independent Extinction Rebellion groups have formed in dozens of countries, and across the globe we have repeatedly shut downstreets and targeted government buildings with acts of peaceful, mass civil disobedience, challenging and disrupting the Business-as-Usual that has us and nature headed for extinction.
