Extinction Rebellion Warwick District

We are facing an unprecedented global climate emergency.

The government has failed to protect us.

To survive, it's going to take everything we've got.

The Political arm of XRWD have had a number of recent meeting with other local organisations in the area on the theme of collaboration. This was on the back of a recognition that many local groups exist that hold similar aims and principles to those of XR and from time to time we need to share ideas and plans. The Warwickshire Climate Alliance (WCA) was conceived as an umbrella organisation in a similar approach to the Climate Coalition (formed for the purpose of the "Time is Now" mass lobby) in order to co-ordinate promotion of the Warwick DC referendum on the council tax. More recently XR member David Mond kindly developed the WCA web-site as a means of promoting an Art Competition for pupils from local schools to enter on the subject of climate change.

A further recent development has been an approach from Stratford Climate Action (SCA) group to work more closely with XRWD , mainly for the purpose of lobbying Warwickshire County Council to increase urgency on low carbon solutions and policy, such as the review of the Local Transport Plan.

The virtual meetings that are underway currently and organised by WCA have been represented by XRWD, SCA , Low Carbon Warks Network and a number of Green Party councillors and local town councillors (inc.Kenilworth)

The next meeting is due to take place on Monday 7th December.

Please also check out the WCA web-site and please feel free to provide any feedback and contributions to help in its development.

NOT YET RECYCLED?

If you're like us, then you will be fed up with buying products from the supermarket with those dreaded words 'not yet recycled' on the packaging.

Our rebels came up with a great idea and we want you to join us! Please save this 'not yet recycled' packaging and bring it to us (maybe collect it in a separate box next to your normal recycling💡).

There will be a drop off point at every Local Group Meeting.

Watch this space for what we are going to do with it! Be assured it will be fun and it'll relieve any guilt you might have, now that you don't have to throw it away.
