Nieuwe rebellen zijn welkom
To prepare new rebels for non-violent actions, XR Utrecht organises monthly training sessions. If you want to take part in actions where there is a risk of arrest, it is advisable to attend a training course. By following this training you can also make an informed decision about whether you want to participate in an action.

During this training you will learn:

🌻how to prepare for an Extinction Rebellion action;
🌻what non-violence means to Extinction Rebellion and what non-violent tactics are;
🌻how a simple blockade works and what joining a blockade involves;
🌻how to ensure your mental well-being during an action;
🌻what an affinity group is and how these groups function during actions;
🌻how an arrest works and how to deal with police presence;
🌻what legal consequences an action can have.

After the training, you will be prepared to join a non-violent action by Extinction Rebellion.

The training will last about 3,5 hours. We start at 19:00 sharp. You can walk in from 18:45. Vlampijpstraat 84 in Utrecht


This training is a good first introduction to Extinction Rebellion. After the training, you will be prepared to join an action. If you want to learn more about the organisation or get to know other rebels, we recommend coming to a welcome café or a potluck on forehand.

Many new rebels have questions about the legal implications of non-violent disobedience. This training will cover the basics. An action is usually preceded by a briefing, in which the consequences of the specific action are explained in more detail. If you plan to join actions more often, a specific legal-training is recommended.
