Restore Nature Now 22 June 2024

Book a coach seat and join Stroudies at RNN march (London 22 June)

🐬 Nature Needs You! 🐬

Rivers choking on pollution, precious woodlands destroyed, seas overfished & peat bogs burned. Nature in the UK is being assaulted.

Last year XRUK created The Big One, where we invited other organisations, charities and groups to demand government action on the climate and ecological nature. On June 22 we return to London, this time, side by side with dozens of organisations and thousands of people from across the country to demand action in a truly co-created action.

You can find out more on the Restore Nature Now page​.

🌊 Join us in the Southwest section 🌊

​Our theme is water, and we’ll be making costumes and our colour themes are blue and aquatic creatures.

We’ll have members of XR Stroud and Street Beats Stroud attending. Hope you see you there.​

 🚎 Book a place on a coach from Gloucestershire 🚎

Just wanted to let you know about a South West family friendly protest day coming up on Saturday 28 October in Bath.

All nature, climate and social justice groups are invited to help shape the event with us.

There will be a number of climate groups joining us in Bath. As ever we will be supported by the Red Rebels and the XR Rhythms bands from across the South West.

It should be a wonderful opportunity to do something about the bad climate news we’ve been hearing about all summer. It will be a fun, relaxing low risk day focused on raising awareness of climate issues.

We’ll share more information about the day as we get nearer the time.
