The People’s Assembly

September 30, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm

free

Politics sucks. But there is another way…

Join the People’s Assembly.

Extinction Rebellion York, in partnership with Yorkshire CND, invite you to the People’s Assembly – held as part of York Environment Week 2023.

In 2019, Extinction Rebellion York hosted a People’s Assembly that led to the declaration of a climate emergency in York. Together, hundreds of York’s citizens voted for mandates that we presented to the council to influence local environmental policy.

After years of uncertainty and inaction, we’re reviving our People’s Assembly to give the citizens of York a voice on local climate issues and policy.

From 13:00 on Saturday 30th September, we’ll hear from national and local environmental leaders, get to the heart of climate issues, and engage in true participatory democracy around three key themes: ending fossil fuelscreative involvement, and protecting what’s threatened.

Based on our discussions, we’ll take recommendations to the council, local businesses, and groups – all aimed at building a movement for change.

The People’s Assembly will be hosted at Central Methodist Church, an accessible venue with refreshments and facilities.

Please also join us to decompress and relax after the event.
