Extinction Rebellion has a set of guiding principles at its heart. It is essential that anyone acting on behalf of Extinction Rebellion does so in line with these principles and values.

Number one in circle

we have a shared vision of change

Creating a world that is fit for generations to come

Number two in circle

we set our mission on what is necessary

Mobilising 3.5% of population to achieve system change - using ideas such as "Momentum-driven organising" to achieve this

Number three in circle

We need a regenerative culture

Creating a culture which is healthy, resilient and adaptable.

Number four in circle

we openly challenge ourselves and this toxic system

Leaving our comfort zones to take action for change.

Number five in a circle

We value reflecting and learning

Following a cycle of action, reflection, learning and planning for more action. Learning from other movements and contexts as well as our own experiences.

Number six in a circle

we welcome everyone and every part of everyone

Working actively to create safer and more accessible spaces.

Number seven in a circle

We actively mitigate for power

Breaking down hierarchies of power for more equitable participation.

Number eight in a circle

we avoid blaming and shaming

We live in a toxic system, but no one individual is to blame.

Number nine in a circle

We are a non-violent network

Using non-violent strategy and tactics as the most effective way to bring about change.

Non-Violent Direct Action ( NVDA) is central to XR, we encourage everyone to attend a training session. Civil Disobedience is not only facing arrest, there are many other aspects, like support and media, that are needed. NVDA training helps you understand how we do creative and joyful direct action safely, confidently, and calmly.

Number ten in a circle

we are based on autonomy and decentralisation

We collectively create the structures we need to challenge power. Anyone who follows these core principles and values can take action in the name of Extinction Rebellion.
