About me

Hi Iā€™m Robin šŸ‘‹ I am one of the cofounders of Extinction Rebellion and I helped to lead a sucessful campaign to get the University of Bristol to divest its portfolio from Ā£2m of fossil fuels. After this win, I decided to suspend my studies in Spanish and Portuguese to focus on climate activism. Since then I have gone on a 2 week hunger strike against the Heathrow Airport Expansion (VoteNoHeathrow), coordinated Communities and Operations at XR and been on spokesperson on various outlets such as the BBC, LBC and famously, Sky News.

In May 2020, I contracted a very bad bout of Coronavirus and have suffered from Long Covid symptoms of chronic headaches and fatigue since. Never to be beaten, I now focus my time more on research whilst I slowly recover. My current mission is to make even the driest scholarly articles about civil resistance, community organising and climate breakdown into accesible resources for social change. I'm particularly interested in supporting other young people on this journey. I might even join them on TikTok to do it šŸ˜‰

Thanks for dropping by my site and taking an interest. All my content is freely available. If you want to support my work, please consider dropping me a regular donation. A regular donation of Ā£3 a month (Supporter) is like grabbing me a coffee to keep going strong. Ā£11 a month (Patron) will help me to increase production values and eventually turn my volunteering into a way to earn a living.

Or just enjoy the resources here for free and drop me a message on social media if you have any questions šŸ˜Š
