XRHF meets every Tuesday evening. We have plenty to discuss, we will be continuing to develop and work on our actions on air pollution across the borough, discussing how we can put pressure on the Council to make sure they deliver (and more) on their Climate pledges.We will also be discussing how we can contribute to the planned XR rebellion. Please come along and join us.
We are running a series of talks on alternate Tuesdays this year - so far we have welcomed speakers on 'Oceans' and 'Make your Money Matter'. This week we will be joined by a speaker from uncommon (https://www.incommon.world/) Join us in person or on zoom; more info on WhatsApp
You can join in with XR in many different ways – as well as local groups (like Hammersmith & Fulham) there are different community groups and other affiliated groups.(Have a look further down this page)
Within H&F we organise ourselves into Working Groups and communicate mainly though WhatsApp groups. The easiest way to start this is to join the Announcements WhatsApp group which is where messages about various things are posted. If you want an overview of what XR is all about - have a look at this video.

The Climate Clock shows two numbers. The first, in red, is a timer, counting down how long it will take, at current rates of emissions, to burn through our “carbon budget” — the amount of CO2 that can still be released into the atmosphere while limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. This is our deadline. The second number is our lifeline. Get the second number to 100% before the first one gets to zero.
