'Welcome to Extinction Rebellion [XR]' is one of our regular talks, given online every Tuesday from 19:00-21:00. The talk is 1.5 hrs with an optional 30 mins for Q&A.

We are a small, friendly and enthusiastic team of speakers who love supporting new joiners with their journey into XR. The importance of helping new joiners find out about XR can't be understated!

The talk introduces important aspects of the movement, e.g. Nonviolent Direct Action, our 3 Demands, our 10 Principles & Values, and all the ways to become more involved in XR.

We operate on a flexible rotation system and you can deliver the talk as and when fits your schedule. A full script is available and you are encouraged to present it in your own words and offer suggestions for improvement.

Training is available for all aspects of delivery including presentation skills and how to use the tech. You will need a fast and stable WIFI connection and a computer or laptop.

The Welcome to XR [W2XR] group is a sub-group of XRUK Talks & Training [T&T] and although W2XR don't meet, we can join the T&T meetings to make sure we feel a part of a physical group and to get wider support. T&T meets every Weds 10:00-11:30 and every second week is an informal coffee morning friendly meeting

W2XR communicate using Mattermost and Telegram and you can use either to chat - if you're unfamiliar with these chat apps, again, training can be given on how to use one or both.

To learn more about W2XR, please read our mandate. and you could register to join a W2XR talk. to get a feel for how they're delivered.

We look forward to meeting you!
