Rebel for Nature

407
participate

Rebellion for Nature takes place between 5th and 14th of October. 

Now is your chance to take part in Elokapina's (Extinction Rebellion Finland) Autumn campaign and call halt to the current slide towards catastrophe! 

When combined, the climate crisis and bioversity loss pose the most serious known threat to humanity and all living things. Given the gravity of the crisis, we all have a extraordinary responsibility to act and respond to it within our means. In the Rebellion For Nature, you can transform your environmental anxieties into concrete action by using the proven effectiveness of non-violent direct action alongside hundreds of other determined rebels.

See below for a list of all upcoming demonstrations and sign up! Please note that each event requires separate registration. There are many different roles for each event, and their descriptions can be found on the event's own sign-up page. If you are attending an Elokapina demonstration for the first time, you will also be guided to participate in the necessary training sessions. If you are able to host the rebels during the campaign, need accommodation or would be interested in playing a media role, you can register directly here.

This Cannot Be Bypassed

14.10.2022 Mannerheimintie, Helsinki
115
participate

The most serious known threat to all living things cannot be ignored, sidelined or silenced. With current policies, we are not only destabilising our climate system, but also driving an estimated one million plant and animal species to the brink of extinction. We will end the Rebellion for Nature by returning to Mannerheimintie, to remind the Finnish government of its responsibility as the driver of the biodiversity loss and the climate crisis. We will not give up.
