Our Principles and Values

Extinction Rebellion is a movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse.

All are welcome who want to adhere to our principles and values

  1. We have a shared vision of change. Creating a world that is fit for generations to come.
  2. We set our mission on what is necessary. Mobilising 3.5% of the population to achieve system change – using ideas such as “Momentum-driven organising” to achieve this.
  3. We need a regenerative culture. Creating a culture which is healthy, resilient and adaptable.
  4. We openly challenge ourselves and our toxic system. Leaving our comfort zones to take action for change.
  5. We value reflecting and learning. Following a cycle of action, reflection, learning, and planning for more action. Learning from other movements and contexts as well as our own experiences.
  6. We welcome everyone and every part of everyone. Working actively to create safer and more accessible spaces.
  7. We actively mitigate for power. Breaking down hierarchies of power for more equitable participation.
  8. We avoid blaming and shaming. We live in a toxic system, but no one individual is to blame.
  9. We are a non-violent network. Using non-violent strategy and tactics as the most effective way to bring about change.
  10. We are based on autonomy and decentralisation. We collectively create the structures we need to challenge power. Anyone who follows these core principles and values can take action in the name of Extinction Rebellion.
