Event description

Description

Get prepared to take part in non-violent direct actions with Extinction Rebellion!

XR Warwick District is offering free NVDA training for all those interested in getting involved in our direct actions.

There are 30 spaces available and booking essential (there is also an evening session in Leamington Spa).

About the Training:

Extinction Rebellion is a peaceful movement addressing the climate crisis through non violent direct action (NVDA).

XR recommends NVDA training for anyone planning to go to London for the October Rebellion or take part in any Action, regardless of whether you see yourself as an arrestible or in a supportive role.

This training will cover the practice of non-violent techniques, including:

  • the background and rationale behind non-violent direct action
  • the relationship between NVDA and the law, and resources to find out more and decide your level of action
  • how affinity groups take action together
  • passive resistance and practical exercises
  • protecting against burnout in actions, and regenerative actions

Parts of this training will be active - please wear comfortable clothes and let us know if you have any access or participation issues that we can be aware of, to help you participate fully.

The training takes 3 hours, and there will be a break in the middle, so please bring your own water and snacks if required.

We will ask for contributions on the night from anyone who feels able to contribute towards the cost of the venue hire.

We look forward to seeing you there - XR Warwick District

The Social Club is at the North end of the car park on the right hand side. It is not in the Kenilworth Centre
