In conversation with Roger Hallam, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion

Posted on 22 June 2022

In our latest Academy session, environmental activist and co-founder of Extinction Rebellion Julian Roger Hallam spoke to Head of Impact Kat Barry about the motives and activities of the Extinction Rebellion movement to date.

Extinction Rebellion originated in the United Kingdom at a meeting of activists including Gail Bradbrook, Roger Hallam and Simon Bramwell in April 2018. Extinction Rebellion has the stated aim of using nonviolent civil disobedience to compel Government action to avoid tipping points in the climate system, biodiversity loss, and social and ecological collapse.

Citing inspiration from grassroots movements such as Occupy, the suffragettes and the civil rights movement, Extinction Rebellion aims to instil a sense of urgency to prevent further "climate breakdown" and a sixth mass extinction.
