Extinction Rebellion is a politically non-partisan international movement that uses non-violent direct action to push governments to act on the Climate and Ecological Emergency.
+++ Extinction Rebellion Heidelberg is saying goodbye +++
All Social movements have something in common: they move. Sometimes they get larger, sometimes they get smaller. Sometimes they change form and sometimes they have to rearrange. And we've decided that it is time to restructure and to close the XR Heidelberg group and help in other initiative in Heidelberg, including the Klimanetz Heidelberg, the Fridays For Future local group and Letzte Generation.
See our full statement in german here.
Creatively and with civil disobedience we want to put pressure on politics and economy to fight against the climate and ecological emergency. Whether with blockades, art actions, debates or demonstrations.
- Tell the truth!
The government must disclose the existential threat to the ecological crisis and declare a climate emergency. All political decisions that stand in the way of overcoming the climate crisis will be revised. The government, the media and all other social institutions must communicate how urgently a change is needed and what every individual, every community and every company can contribute.
- Act now!
The government must act now to reduce man-made greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025. The extinction of species must be stopped and ecological overexploitation must be curbed and - if possible - reversed by all means. The central goal of society in the future is to stabilize the Earth's climate and ecosystems in such a way that they provide a safe home for all people and all species.
- Beyond politics!
Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice. Find out more about Citizens' Assemblies
Our local group
We meet regularly in plenary sessions, in working groups(AGs) or also at events or actions.
And if you want to participate, just come over to an onboarding - these are always on the first tuesday of the month. You can find out more about it here: https://extinctionrebellion.de/veranstaltungen/heidelberg/
The onboarding is normally in german, but most of us can easily do it in english. So the speech barrier should be absolutely no problem, especially if you write us a mail beforehand.
