What is a General Assembly?

A general assembly is a gathering of XR members who want to help guide and build our local movement.
It's an entry-point; a place for people to be welcomed into the movement and to become more deeply involved in XR Vancouver. It's a space to connect with other XR members, build group cohesion and trust, and discuss topics and strategies central to our movement.
It's a decision-making body and a collective voice to help guide our direction and coordinate between XR working groups and affinity groups.
It's a place of adaptation and inspiration, of reflection and imagination, and of community and regeneration.

Why should you attend?

You've been inspired by the XR actions in the UK and want to get involved in building the movement here.
You are worried about the future of our planet and want to take action / support others taking action.
You are a part of a working group, but feel disconnected from or confused about the group identity and direction

Goals of assembly:
- An entry-point for people to get deeper involved with XR (welcoming space)
- To help build group cohesion, trust, and identity (connecting space)
- To help guide our movement by being our collective voice (decision-making space)

What to expect?

1) We will give an overview of our working groups; what's been done/where we are at.
2) Group discussions on a pre-chosen topics with possibility of group decision-making
3) A chance to meet with other people in your community during breakout groups to discuss ideas for actions and/or what working group you might like to get involved in.

Everybody is welcome, no matter your knowledge or experience.
