What we do
Through this homestay concept, we hope to start more conversations around the climate and ecological emergency, foster connections between the movement and local communities, and most importantly to offer affordable accommodation to those who need it most.
Who we are
xr.humanhotel.org is an independent and self-contained homesharing community for the climate justice movement. It is created by Extinction Rebellion UK in partnership with Human Hotel with the aim of becoming a long-term, international platform.
Extinction Rebellion UK is the UK-based branch of an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and
Human Hotel is a creative studio that strives to build real human connections. We began life by finding housing for over 3000 activists in Copenhagen for the COP15 in 2009.
Find answers to some of the more frequent questions about the Rebel Homestay Network here and in our customer support area.
I don't have a spare room, can I still get involved?
Absolutely! You can list a couch, crash space or outside space (garden, parking space for a camper van) for those who are comfortable sharing space.
What are the terms and conditions?
What's the difference between xr.humanhotel.org and booking.humanhotel.com?
xr.humanhotel.org is the specially designed Extinction Rebellion Homestay Network. It has been set up as a collaboration between Extinction Rebellion UK and Human Hotel to host those coming to London for the Summer Rebellion which will begin on 23rd August 2021, but with the aim of becoming a long-term platform for Extinction Rebellion conscientious protectors across the world.
booking.humanhotel.com is the original Human Hotel platform – ‘a curated community for like-hearted humans to share homes and connect.’ It offers its users the opportunity to host and stay with each other around the world.
What does COVID-19 mean for Rebellion and the Homestay Network?
Public health and safety, particularly during the ongoing pandemic, is our primary concern. We’re confident that with the majority of UK adults due to be vaccinated by the summer of 2021, and with Covid cases now declining across the UK, our Rebel Homestay Network will be the safest accommodation option for activists needing a place to stay in August and September.
We will, however, only use the Homestay Network during Summer Rebellion if it is safe to do so: in line with scientific advice and the Government Coronavirus restrictions.
I want to support the climate movement but can’t host during the Rebellion, how else can I get involved?
There are lots of ways to get involved with the activities in and around Rebellion to support Extinction Rebellion’s campaign to meet the 3 demands. Sign up to the mailing list here and more information can be found here about joining Extinction Rebellion in a way that is meaningful to you. Join us!
You can also sign up as host anywhere you are, and be part of the long term future of the Rebel Homestay Network.
