Extinction Rebellion

To support the educational aspects of Extinction Rebellion's mission

$200,000 Grant Value


  • Compassionate Revolution

Extinction Rebellion (XR) aims to spark an international movement to challenge governments to tell the truth about the climate emergency. 

CIFF’s funds are supporting educational aspects of XR’s mission. This includes costs of educational materials, trainings and workshops, and volunteer expenses related to time spent conducting educational activities.


A large part of XR’s work in 2019 will focus on securing public and political support for a climate citizens’ assembly in the UK, utilising public mobilisation to drive for more formal mechanisms of public participation. A well-structured citizens’ assembly in the UK can be an example for other countries to follow.
