Start a group

Rebelling for life is more effective if you're organized. There are many ways to do this. The most important are in as a local XR group (existing or to be established), as an affinity group, or with a community that you are already part of. In this section you will find resources for all these different organizational forms.

Affinity groups

You and your friends, family, neighbours and colleagues want to get organised, or are organised and ready to take action! Affinity Groups (AGs) are the basic organising structure for any of XR’s action. They consist of 4-12 rebels that will take action together. Here you will find all you need to form an affinity group and/or successfully organize or join actions!

Community groups

XR Nederland Community Groups are a way for existing and new rebels to connect and work together through communities of shared self-identity (for example, profession, hobbies, faith or sexuality) rather than of shared location. Is your community already engaged with XR and the climate and ecological crisis?
