Join a working group

Working groups form the backbone of what we do; aside from direct actions it’s how we collaborate in teams and contribute our skills in order to keep XR Lewes going. As with everything we do, these function in a way that is decentralised, autonomous, non-violent and act with care for the whole. 

These are the existing working groups that have been set up to support XR Lewes. If you are interested in volunteering for a group or would like to contact the group for advice or support, please attend your next local XR meeting or email us at xrlewes @
