XR Nottingham Book Club will be reading and discussing It’s Not That Radical: Climate Action to Transform Our World by Mikaela Loach.
In the book, Mikaela Loach offers a fresh and radical perspective for real climate action that could drastically change the world as we know it, for the benefit of us all.
Written with candour and hope, It’s Not That Radical will galvanise readers to take action, offering an accessible and transformative appraisal of our circumstances to help mobilise a majority for the future of our planet.
This meeting will be to discuss our thoughts after reading the book.
Extending a lifetime’s worth of zero-waste activism, visionary designer Bakker devises the Future Food System, a self-sufficient residence that provides shelter, food and energy while reusing any by-products as fuel or fertiliser. Joined by esteemed chefs Matt Stone and Jo Barrett, he works with a team of builders, engineers, and experts in agriculture, aquaponics and biochemistry to realise the project at Melbourne’s Fed Square – culminating in the launch of a unique farm-to-table restaurant.

The film Conscientious Protectors puts you right in the middle of the beginnings of the Extinction Rebellion movement. The film follows the founding members of the non-violent direct action climate change group XR, from their first public meetings in October 2018 through to their shutdown of London in April 2019.
Leigh Bloomfield's documentary, with close access to the Extinction Rebellion founders, and a cast of thousands of protestors (including actor Emma Thompson and Former Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams) reveals how they did it. Multiple cameras sweep through the heart of the protests, witnessing the logistical gymnastics and amusing police liaisons, while also taking small moments to nestle in the hearts of the protesters, exploring their resolve as well.
With all the tension of a heist thriller, as the countdown to the rebellion starts, the film is also an inspiring portrait of people prepared to risk and sacrifice in order to make a change for the better – defying authority and corporate might with breathtaking courage.
