Extinction Rebellion Exeter is hosting a community talk about the climate crisis and how to tackle it on Friday 31 March at Exeter Community Centre.
University of Exeter climate scientist James Dyke will lead the discussion, and there will be information about the Extinction Rebellion 100 days campaign which began earlier this year.
The campaign is focussed on a gathering of 100,000 people in Parliament Square on 21 to 24 April – an event Extinction Rebellion is describing as “The Big One”.
There will also be free vegan food.
James Dyke is Associate Professor in Earth System Science and Assistant Director of the University of Exeter Global Systems Institute.
He has written more than 100 articles for publications including The Guardian, The Ecologist and The Conversation and is the environment columnist for the i newspaper.
He and his co-authors won a Covering Climate Now journalism award last year for their article Climate scientists: the concept of net zero is a dangerous trap.
The Extinction Rebellion Exeter Act Together community climate talk is from 6-8pm on Friday 31 March at Exeter Community Centre.
The event is free. Places can be reserved on the Extinction Rebellion Exeter website.
