An Extinction Rebellion speaker will visit Wanstead next month to discuss climate change and explain how non-violent, direct action can bring pressure on governments to act.

“Extinction Rebellion is helping us focus on the climate crisis we face. Yes, it is great the government has made a commitment to net zero carbon emissions by 2050, but most climate scientists say that is too late,” said a spokesperson for Wanstead Climate Action.

The talk will take place at Christ Church on 1 July from 7.30pm to 9.30pm (free).
