Gail Bradbrook
Co-founder of Extinction Rebellion

Dr Gail Bradbrook 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.
