Lean Story Canvas
From many different backgrounds and professions but united in the admirable and relatable cause of rebelling and campaigning for the future lives of their children.
Climate movement is credibly established as mainstream but still not enough political action and still people who deny that climate breakdown is a priority of humanity.
A tipping point of public pressure that forces the Government and businesses to act boldly to prevent extinction.
Mass extinction, extinction of the planet, extinction of people, extinction of animals... Extinction of the world as we know it.
Call to Adventure
It is now or never. We are running out of time to make a real impact.
Crossing the Threshold
XR is a diverse movement which welcomes everybody to unite for the planet.
Three difficult but confidence-building hurdles to be overcome
- For politicians and corporations to tell the truth. Be transparent about where they are and where they will help. Cut through fake news.
- For governments to pledge to Carbon Net Zero by 2025.
- For change to be made throughout the ubiquitous everyday not just in politics.
