XR Chelmsford is the Chelmsford branch of Extinction Rebellion. We are building a local community of people who are concerned about the climate crisis and want to take action. We are looking for new members — find out below how you can get involved.
What are the first steps to join?
We have different levels of involvement and commitment so that anyone can fit in.
Whether you can contribute a few hours a month, or several hours a week, we need your help.
If you are yet to dip your toes in the water, you can:
Come to an XR Chelmsford meet up
We have a monthly group meet up made up of new and existing members. You can find out when the next meeting is on the Events Page. If you are new to XR, you will be given a brief introduction and explanation of how things work. This will help you to figure out where you can fit in, and what you would like your contribution to be. These are friendly meet-ups with no strings attached. You will meet other people who have concerns about the environment and want to take action.
Come to an XR Chelmsford talk
We regularly hold a “Heading To Extinction” talk that explains what the situation is with the climate crisis. We encourage everyone to attend one of these (or watch online) to get a better understanding of the science behind the climate crisis. These are free to attend and come with no strings attached.
