Rebel Ringing Party

A fun introductory session to XR’s phone banking system, designed to reach out to new rebels and keep them engaged, as well as supporting them in finding their place within XR. Come along to chat to some fellow XR folk and learn about how rebel ringing works, then get stuck right in and make some calls (we’ll mute the Zoom for that part, or you can leave and do it on your own)! BYOT – bring your own tea / coffee ☕🧃🥤 If you can’t make it but want to get involved, watch this handy guide from home:



Rebel Meeting

The weekly meeting is a chance for rebels across Bristol to come together, find out what’s coming up and learn from each other. Everyone is welcome!

Outreach Weekly Meet Up

Do you want to skip the meetings and get straight to some action? Each week on Thursday at 6pm Bristol XR Outreach get together to spread the XR message – flyering, postering, painting and all kinds of other inventive ways to get the word out.

You can come and meet other rebels whilst getting a feel for what XR is all about! All that changes each week is the activity and the location. Join one of our Bristol whatsapp broadcasts or postcode groups to receive updates every Monday on what we are getting up to next! (PW is: bristol)

Listening circle

Listening well to someone and being listened to helps us to think. Listening circles allow us to explore the impact of what is happening both on us as individuals and collectively. They provide an opportunity to share what we are feeling and listen to the thoughts and feelings of others.

If there are feelings from the rebellion, climate emergency or being part of XR and you want a space to explore them please come along. Everyone is welcome to join.

Rebel Meeting: Big Bristol Meeting

We’re still hosting rebel meetings every week, but the first Tuesday of each month is special. At our Big Bristol Meeting, once a month, the whole of XR Bristol gets together – every rebel, every working group, affinity group, circle, community and project – all in one, big virtual place. 

As a single organism we’ll learn and plan together, sharing and focusing our ideas and energy to make us bigger, stronger and more connected.

It’s the place to get inspired, get informed and get involved in campaigns, projects and groups.
