About us

XR Cirencester is here for everyone passionate about acting on the truth: that we face an unprecendented climate emergency and only large scale societal action can change it. We’re working at a local level to promote awareness and action in the Cotswolds, as well as supporting the international Extinction Rebellion cause to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.

What is Extinction Rebellion?

Extinction Rebellion is an international apolitical network using non-violent direct action to persuade governments to act on the Climate and Ecological Emergency. 

The carbon emissions we release through transport, agriculture and industry are causing the Earth’s temperature to rise and the overwhelming evidence is that if we don’t change this soon the consequences for everyone on the planet with be disastrous:

  • Sea level rise 
  • Desertification
  • Wildfires
  • Water shortage
  • Crop failure
  • Extreme weather
  • Millions displaced 
  • Disease
  • Increased risk of wars and conflicts
