Extinction Rebellion Bristol

2023 Retrospective

“It is only when you look back down the hill that you realise how far you have climbed, even if you are still far from the summit…”

At this time in the year it is often worthwhile reflecting on what we have done and the good we have achieved, if only to make the road ahead seem less daunting and give courage for the journey ahead.

Take a few moments to watch these videos from 2023 and feel the spirit rising in you to do yet more into 2024 to build a better world for us and all life on Earth.

And from across the country

If these videos inspire you to join us in our activities and action, then please contact us below or visit our Meetings page for more info on being with other like-minded people.

Welcome to Beyond

The Fossil Fuel Era

Everyone is welcome

Extinction Rebellion is founded on a number of fundamental principles

One of the key ones is that we value reflecting and learning.

Since The BIG One in April 2023, where we gathered so many thousands of souls to fight for our lives, we have been reflecting and learning about that event and what it helps us to do next.

We have done a lot of work deliberating at our open meetings and also hard graft behind the scenes to build our XR Bristol Strategy.
