This talk will be in Dutch.

The science is clear: we face planetary warming, extinction of species and loss of biodiversity, extreme pollution, acidification of waters and destruction of forests. We are heading towards a catastrophe if we do not act. How to deal with this terrifying reality?

In the first part of this lecture, we give an overview of the state of the climate crisis and the biodiversity crisis. Everything will be underpinned by scientific insights. You don’t need any prior knowledge.

In the second part, we talk about Extinction Rebellion, a movement of citizens who see that a different approach is needed. What does Extinction Rebellion want to achieve, how do we want to do it, what are our values and principles, and why will this work?
