Heading for Extinction (And What to Do About It) : A public presentation from Extinction Rebellion WA about the climate crisis and our response to it Other events...
There is no more time to delay taking urgent action on the ecological crisis which is upon us. Unless we respond now, societal collapse and mass extinction are seen as inevitable by scientists and many other experts. We can all feel it coming.

Extinction Rebellion WA is part of an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to minimise the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse. Extinction Rebellion believes it is a citizenís duty to rebel. History shows us that peaceful civil disobedience is the most effective way to bring about rapid social change.

In this public talk, we will share the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, discuss some of the current psychology around climate change, and offer solutions through the study of social movements.

In August, Extinction Rebellion WA will roll out direct actions across Perth, including a Declaration at Parliament on August 15th.

Everyone is welcome and there will be time to ask questions and discuss afterwards
