Workshop: Exploring Non-Violent Direct Actions

This workshop allows participants to interactively discuss a series of actions for their effectiveness and their non-violence. What works? What upsets people? A useful workshop for building understanding and consensus around objectives and methods.

Workshop: Emotionally Debriefing After Rebellion

Rebellions are wonderful – full of compassion and creativity. However, they can also be emotionally and physically draining. It is important that we take the time after a rebellion to debrief with those we have taken action with.

This can be done in person if you are a local group or it can be done via an online programme such as Zoom if meeting face to face is not possible.

This is a Emotional debriefing guide which can be used to assist with the process of emotionally debriefing following a rebellion.

Activity: Prayer flags

At the October Rebellion 2019, there was a Faith Bridge on Lambeth Bridge, where the bridge was held by individuals of different faith communities. Churches made prayer flags ahead of this and they were strung up across the bridge. This was a way of expressing our emotions about climate change in prayerful way. You can do this activity yourself and bring them to the next rebellion
