Extinction Rebellion (XR) organisers say a forthcoming community talk in Southampton will give people the chance to "express their feelings about the climate and nature emergency and what we can do about it".
Climate and social scientist Bors Hulesch, pictured, will lead the discussion at the event, called ‘Act Together: How We Tackle the Climate Crisis’.
He warns urgent action is needed, with the world on a current trajectory to reach three to four degrees centigrade of warming by the end of the century.
The evening will include short testimonies given by local residents affected by the climate crisis who will describe what action they are taking.
And, says XR, it will also be a chance to find out about a campaign to unite climate, nature, and community groups, and “bring 100,000 people together outside Parliament in London from April 21 this year in a peaceful gathering that is open, inclusive and focuses energy on pressuring the government instead of ordinary people”.
The talk takes place at the Friends Meeting House in Ordnance Road at 6.30pm on Thursday March 16. More details and booking on Eventbrite.
