An introductory talk about the group Extinction Rebellion will be held at The Park Community Centre in Weymouth.

The talk will be taking place on Monday, July 29 from 7pm to 9pm.

One of the organisers said: “If you're curious to find out more about Extinction Rebellion or already know that you'd like to get involved locally then this is the event for you.

"This is an introduction to Extinction Rebellion and focuses on the stark realities of climate change and the wider ecological emergency, the inspirational possibilities for change through collective action, the aims and objectives of Extinction Rebellion and how you can get involved.”

The event will be free to attend, but donations are welcomed and will go towards covering the cost of hiring the room.
