(Being the Change Affinity Network)

The XR Being the Change Affinity Network (XR-BCAN) is a new formation of groups and peoples determined to make good on the potential of Extinction Rebellion, by helping bring together a growing network of communities of resistance in unifying people's power to win true planet repairs. Not by demanding psycopathic governments and elites change, but by Being the Change we as a global family need, the true liboratory change that has been fought for through generations of resistance throughout the world - especially within our Indigneous and Global South communities. We are based in the UK and from here seek to bridge North to South in direct, meaningful and power building relationships of action learning internationalist solidarity.


There is much more of course and as such, we invite you to watch our initial Strategy talks below:

BCAN Flagship Project: PRALER

- the Planet Repairs Action Learning Educational Revolution -

A joint initiative of communities of resistance, organisations, and networks,

glocally BUILDING AND promoting the UBUNTUPACHAVIDYA peoples' communiversity of planet repairs action learning (UPCOPRAL)

Launched in October 2022 with the Reclamation of the Walter Rodney Freedom Square in SOAS University London, and our Glocal Declaration, PRALER is a process to connect and support all peoples with a true interest in the power of education for Planet Repairs.

Based in the powerful educational process of our family across the world - read about their projects here in the PRALER Booklet - we'll be developing Communities Of Lifelong Learning Studay Action Groups (COLLSAGs) to amplify this work as a direct challenge to the rampant forms of mis-edcuation that are seen throughout our Schools, Universites and beyond. As such, we must relearn that if our communities are going to be truly powerful we must take back collective ownership of our educational processes - just as our Family do! - and thus join them through PRALER in the essential building of UPCOPRAL and together bring All Peoples to Power!
