Get Involved

There are so many ways to get involved - everyone has something to contribute and together we are stronger.

We have many different working groups so whatever your skills or particular interests there is a place for you. You really don’t need to get arrested to be part of XR! 

Current working groups include:

  • Samba Band
  • Arts and Crafts 
  • Banner Dropping
  • Flyering and Stickering
  • Internal Coordinators
  • Monday Meeting Planning Group
  • Media and Messaging
  • Stalls / Climate Hub
  • Website

If any of these interest you, drop us an email, xrsheffield@gmail.com, and we’ll link you up!

We’re also always keen for new working groups so if you have an idea, let us know! (And if you have any legal experience we’re particularly keen to hear from you.)

Want to help but low on time? You can also support through making a donation.

​To receive regular updates by email, please sign up to our mailing list at the bottom of this page and you are welcome to join us at our weekly Monday meetings where there will be an induction session for new members running parallel to the main meeting.

​You can also get involved by volunteering with us, see below.

We are facing an ecological crisis and we need your help. Our beautiful movement is built on the work of volunteers who give their time and energy to help achieve radical change.

The list below shows the roles we need to fill a bit more urgently but there are always lots of things you can do to support our work - a list of our working groups is on this page.
