What we do

Within each local group, there are working groups devoted to various aspects of the work of Extinction Rebellion. Everyone involved is a volunteer. You don’t have to be an expert to get involved. There is always training available on how to get the most out of each role and lots of people to encourage and guide you along the way. Within Extinction Rebellion, you will often hear ‘We are all crew.’ That’s because we are. Everyone is encouraged to find a role that suits them and get involved.

Each local working group feeds into regional and national working groups so you can connect with other people around the UK to inspire and support one another. You’ll find a list of working groups here that are active in the North East & Cumbria with a brief description of what the group focuses on. If you’re interested in finding out more, then email xrne@protonmail.com with details of which working group you’re interested in and where you live in the region.
