Principles and Values

 
 

1

WE HAVE A SHARED VISION OF CHANGE

Creating a world that is fit for generations to come.

 
 

2

WE SET OUR MISSION ON WHAT IS NECESSARY

Mobilising 3.5% of the population to achieve system change – using ideas such as “Momentum-driven organizing” to achieve this.

 
 

3

WE NEED A REGENERATIVE CULTURE

Creating a culture which is healthy, resilient and adaptable.

 
 

4

WE OPENLY CHALLENGE OURSELVES AND THIS TOXIC SYSTEM

Leaving our comfort zones to take action for change.

 
 

5

WE VALUE REFLECTING AND LEARNING

Following a cycle of action, reflection, learning, and planning for more action. Learning from other movements and contexts as well as our own experiences.

 
 

6

WE WELCOME EVERYONE AND EVERY PART OF EVERYONE

Working actively to create safer and more accessible spaces.

 
 

7

WE ACTIVELY MITIGATE FOR POWER

Breaking down hierarchies of power for more equitable participation.

 
 

8

WE AVOID BLAMING AND SHAMING

We live in a toxic system, but no one individual is to blame.

 
 

9

WE ARE A NON-VIOLENT NETWORK

Using non-violent strategy and tactics as the most effective way to bring about change.

 
 

10

WE ARE BASED ON AUTONOMY AND DECENTRALIZATION

We collectively create the structures we need to challenge power. Anyone who follows these core principles and values can take action in the name of Extinction Rebellion.

 
 

VISION

A world where we build thriving connections within our society and environment, bringing hope and enabling us to decide the direction of our lives and futures. An inclusive world, where we work consciously to ensure fair processes of collective decision-making, where creativity is prioritised, and where our diversity of gifts are recognised, celebrated and flourish.

MISSION

To spark and sustain a spirit of creative rebellion, which will enable much needed changes in our political, economic and social landscape. We endeavour to mobilise and train organisers to skilfully open up space, so that communities can develop the tools they need to address the deeply rooted problems of the United States. We work to transform our society into one that is compassionate, inclusive, sustainable, equitable and connected.
