Extinction Rebellion NVDA Training

Presented by Extinction Rebellion

NVDA Training + Affinity Group Starter Session, delivered by Extinction Rebellion

Find out how to take part in Extinction Rebellion actions.

This training will cover the practice of non-violent techniques: showing you how to de-escalate tense situations, how to interact with the police, what to do if you get arrested and much more.

In the afternoon there will be a session to form Affinity Groups, which is a group of like minded people who can act together and support each other during the protest. There will be exercises to help you form groups, work effectively together and to teach groups how to plan their own actions.

This training is designed to give you confidence when on protests and is essential for anyone who wishes to get more clued up on their rights and non violent direct action.

Even if you have attended NVDA trainings in the past, it may still be useful to get a top up.

The NVDA and Affinity Group sessions are stand-alone but complementary. You can attend just one of the sessions but are encouraged to go to both:

11am-3:30pm: NVDA (Non Violent Direct Action) training

4pm-5:30pm: Affinity Group Formation and mentoring

Please note this is for everyone with an interest in the cause.

Training is free, but small donations to cover hall hire costs and food are appreciated.

Vegan lunch will be provided for those attending the NVDA training, with light refreshments available in the afternoon.

Book your place via Eventbrite:
