Heading to Extinction at The Riverford Field Kitchen
Are you interested to find out more about the movement that has mobilised people from across the world to make a stand on climate breakdown? Would you like to better understand the objectives of the controversial activist movement Extinction Rebellion (XR) and how they’ve managed to galvanise such substantial action without resorting to the hierarchical structures used in most organisations?
This November, The Riverford Field Kitchen is hosting an evening of climate emergency conversation and veg-centric dining. Join Caroline Pakel, XR People’s Assembly Coordinator and Political Circle Strategy Rep, and understand the motivations behind the movement, and what organisations can learn from this powerful societal emergence.
Date: Tuesday 26th November 2019
Times: 6.30pm arrival, 7pm welcome from founder Guy Singh-Watson and dinner is served. 8pm talk by Caroline Pakel. 9.30-10pm evening ends
Price: £20, with £5 donation from every ticket to Extinction Rebellion
Whether you are a business, an XR veteran, an undecided individual, an opponent, or a newcomer keen to better understand XR’s philosophy and thinking, Caroline will talk through XR’s principles and values, and you’ll have the chance to understand the impact this rapidly formed organisation has already achieved. It'll be a friendly, welcoming space, suitable for anyone concerned about environmental breakdown or organisations looking to be inspired by new models for change.
No visit to the Riverford Field Kitchen would be complete without some inspiring veg-focused food. The evening includes a light vegetarian supper, featuring seasonal vegetables from the farm and fields all around.
Riverford’s position on the global climate strikes and Extinction Rebellion
Riverford supports the aims of the Global Climate Strikes and Extinction Rebellion (XR). We believe that institutions, businesses and politicians have failed in their responsibility to protect our planet for future generations. The Global Climate Strikes and XR have filled this vacuum and are cause for hope and optimism. Ultimately it is down to individual co-owners, customers and others whether they want to become directly involved - a personal choice that we respect one way or the other.
