SUPPORT FOR NEW REBELS
The buddy system: this exists to help new rebels feel welcome and to help them find their feet within XR. As a new rebel, you will be matched with a ‘buddy’, usually from your local affinity group, who offers a supportive weekly phone call for four weeks.
Training: XR Wandsworth offers induction sessions for new rebels, and XR UK has online welcome sessions. The XRW newsletter gives upcoming dates for these and other training sessions. See also our Events page.
Contact your local group to be matched with your buddy.
In XR a Local Group (LG) is a small, autonomous group of rebels who support each other and work together to achieve XR’S goals. There are four LGs in XR Wandsworth. They plan and carry out actions together and with other Wandsworth rebels, and go to larger events like the full-scale rebellions together.

Talk on the Climate Crisis
This is a zoom recording of the free zoom talk we held on 21st March 2022. We hold this talk monthly and follow it with discussion. It covers the science of the climate and ecological emergency and XR’s perspective on what we can do about it. We are just beginning to introduce in-person talks too! Search ‘XR Wandsworth’ on Eventbrite to find out what’s happening whenever you’re reading this.
