Overview of society
UPXR is a platform for students conscious, concerned or ready to learn, about the climate and ecological crisis. Although using the wider Extinction Rebellion name we have our own principles within the demands. There is a community of XR universities that support each other to bring about change, regarding our education.
We want our education system to:
TELL the TRUTH - Openly talk about climate change across all courses, we suggest during the introduction week.
ACT NOW - Addressing the current financial funding, we are investing and accepting from the wrong industry; let's get green!
CITIZENS ASSEMBLY - Student voices need to be heard. Discussing our courses is great, but how can we bring other concerns to the university?
**WE WILL NOT BE DISTURB OR STOP STUDENT FROM STUDYING - WE ARE NON VIOLENT AND NON-ARRESTABLE**
