"...XR is at a turning point. What happens next is its most important decision to date. It could propel us all to new heights in 2020, or see us plagued by the incoherence that many of you have been feeling since last October’s Rebellion." p. 3 Rushing the Emergency, Rushing the Rebellion? – Story and Vision for XR in 2020

March 6 (Friday): Empathy Cafe: How might XR more effectively mediate conflict?
Conflict is a normal part of life. In this Empathy Cafe, we will use the Empathy Circle process to discuss and take tangible actions on; How might Extinction Rebellion more effectively mediate, facilitate and resolve internal (and external) conflict? The Empathy Circle process itself, is a very simple and foundational conflict resolution practice that anyone can use. We will learn and practice this skill.
