Many of the freedoms we enjoy today would never have come about without movements or individuals acting to assert their legitimacy. From Martin Luther King to Otpor in Serbia, from Gandhi to Rosa Parks, history shows us that non-violent direct action, when properly structured, is a formidable force for achieving justice in a timely and effective manner.

The current challenge is the climate emergency. Policies are slow to act and it will soon be too late to prevent half of our planet becoming uninhabitable by 2100. To ensure a future for our children, we must act NOW, and we must train ourselves to act in resilient and effective ways.
