Climate change is often in the news. But just how bad are things really? And what can we do about it? A local talk for Nottinghamshire.

The planet is in ecological crisis. We are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction event this planet has experienced.

Scientists believe we may have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. This is an unprecedented global emergency. Our children and our nation face grave risk.

In this public talk for Nottinghamshire, local members of Extinction Rebellion 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.

All ages are welcome and encouraged to attend, but places are limited on a first-come-first-served basis.

To ensure your place, please book through Eventbrite – click here – no need to print paper copy.
Due to the content of the talk, parental discretion is advised if bringing along young children.

This event aims to:
raise awareness of and tell the truth about the current environmental crisis;
arm local people with facts they can share with neighbours, friends and family;
consider what we can do about this in Nottinghamshire.

There will be time to ask questions and discuss afterwards. Entry is free but donations towards venue hire costs at the end of the event are welcome (only if you can afford to).

Doors open and refreshments available from 7:00pm.

***Please note this event is independently-funded and organised for Nottinghamshire citizens, with speakers from Extinction Rebellion (a climate activism movement and pressure group). Contact the Event Organiser if you would like further info or clarification.***
