In the Round... with Dr Gail Bradbrook, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion

Monday 28 October, 6.30pm — 8pm, Austin Pearce Building, University of Surrey

The University of Surrey presents a new series of events featuring public figures who have created social change or influenced contemporary public debate. Each event will include a one-to-one interview, followed by an interactive session with participants on what they believe, what motivates them and what drives them to create public change. We launch the series with the co-founder of one the fastest growing environmental protest movements in Europe: Extinction Rebellion.

Dr Gail Bradbrook, as the co-founder of Extinction Rebellion, has invited UK citizens to join her on the streets of London to close the city down and has said she is '"willing to die" if it would serve to protect the environment. Gail is a scientist, trained in molecular biophysics, who has been a key advocate of civil disobedience, inspiring around half a million protesters onto the streets and thousands of volunteers prepared to use civil disobedience to respond to the ecological crisis.

Champions of Extinction Rebellion claim that the movement is a democratic grass-root climate change movement, which has taken to the streets with less than twelve years to save the earth before the impact of climate change is irreversible. Detractors criticise their message and/or the methods used by Extinction Rebellion.

The evening will look at what has influenced Gail, her movement and her beliefs.

The event is free to attend, but booking is required.
