Empower, upskill, engage and recruit others by delivering short on-the-ground talks. We need a huge number of Street Speakers for all XRUK actions and events to share the love!

There are always lots of new people who need training as well as those who need refreshers - particularly in Nonviolent Direct Action and Know Your Rights training.

XR street talks have been designed for anyone to deliver without the need for training. However, we hold support workshops to help build your confidence, where to find the street talks and find a street buddy. Please email to request a workshop.

If you want to find out more, everything you need is on the Rebel Toolkit in the Street Speakers book including the Street Speakers Guidance doc and the scripts:

XRUK Talks & Training

Location: XR UK (UK Wide)

XRUK Talks & Training coordinates talks, training and workshops for the movement upon request, and we proactively organise talks, training and workshops across the movement. Our other roles consist of collating and cataloguing talk, training and workshop materials from across the movement, making training information accessible to the movement and ensuring that training materials and training, are accessible to all volunteers. We maintain a database of XRUK speakers and trainers, as well as writing, updating and distributing the 'Non Violent Direct Action' (NVDA), 'Heading for Extinction' (H4E) and Street Speakers' training/talks materials. And lastly, we provide support to other XRUK circles to improve the quality of their talks, training and workshops.
