Mount Barker: Extinction Rebellion DNA Talk
September 28, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The growth of Extinction Rebellion has been explosive across the globe. Following the patterns of nature embedded in DNA is at the core of this success. The XR DNA training aims to provide the blueprint understanding of what XR is all about to help members talk about and grow Extinction Rebellion, self-organising our communities into a force that cannot be ignored. This training is a perfect next step after attending a Heading for Extinction talk to find out how you can best contribute your skills, energy and passion to the movement.
The self-organising systems that all life is based on begins with a DNA blueprint (explicit organisation structure) which is replicated (mass training). A catalyst (public direct action) sparks further growth which is replicated creating a positive feedback loop. For the organism to work, enough DNA must be shared between the autonomous parts acting under their own volition to create a unified, directional movement.
We recommend coming to our Heading for Extinction Presentation before attending this talk as it provides important background information about Extinction Rebellion and the climate and ecological crisis.
