The world has changed significantly since Extinction Rebellion launched just over a year ago. Inspired by activists around the world, arm in arm with other movements, thousands of us have been part of that change; people from all walks of life, united by courage and purpose.
In 2019 we raised the alarm, in 2020 we are coming together to create real possibilities, actively challenging the divisions that support this toxic system which celebrates a culture of individuality, then passes the buck to the next generation. Like national policies, international climate agreements have failed for 30 years and we expect COP 26 to be no different. This is why we will aim beyond it. Our future will not look like our past. It will take real courage to do what’s needed in 2020 - it’s time to come together and show each other the leadership we need.
