Co-founder of Extinction Rebellion

Extinction Rebellion and the role of psychedelics- personal and beyond

Dr Gail Bradbrook, a co-founder of XR will share her stories and thinking on the use of psychedelics to support social and personal change and how those two issues interlink. She will be looking at intention, trauma healing, community and ceremony as key themes.

Gail is a co-founder of Extinction Rebellion, the social movement launched in October 2018 which rapidly spread across the UK and internationally. It is based on the idea of telling the truth about the extent of the ecological crisis and asking people to act accordingly. The movement focusses on mass civil disobedience, rapid decarbonisation and lowering of consumption and the establishment of a Citizen Assembly as a response to the democratic deficit.

Gail has previously been involved in Transition Stroud, Tax Justice Network, Compassionate Revolution and Street School Economics. She has worked for a charity focussed on digital inclusion and has a PhD in molecular biophysics.
