An environmental group is holding a talk and Q&A session in Newark this week.

Extinction Rebellion (XR) Newark and Sherwood will hold the session, for residents to learn more about the climate crisis and how to make a difference together, on Thursday.

Revealing its new Project 3.5, XR is seeking to build a UK movement of local people acting together to tackle the climate crisis, and wants to build a movement that becomes too big for the government and fossil fuel industry to ignore.

The event will be at the London Road Congregational Church at 7pm.

Alongside refreshments and cake, the talk will focus on how change happens when a large section of the population takes action on a single matter.

In consultation with experts from Momentum, The Social Practice and The Green New Deal, this project will work to test XR's theory of change and help mobilise millions of people towards non-violent civil resistance.

XR Newark and Sherwood will share more on this big plan and invite local people to consider how they want to contribute.

It will also be an opportunity to meet the XR group and ask questions.

“We’re inviting everyone in Newark to come along on a journey and learn about how they can play a part in helping tackle the climate crisis. There is a role for everyone,” says Wendy Patterson, an XR Newark and Sherwood member.

“Accept our invitation and share it far and wide with everyone you know. Bring a friend or two, or sit alongside like-minded neighbours who want to build community and take positive action for change.”
