Make a placard to take with you
Refillable water bottle and snacks
Check the weather and wear appropriate clothing. Comfy shoes is a must
Take extra precautions with little ones - consider writing your mobile number somewhere on their person (their arm is a popular choice) and take a photo of them in what they’re wearing on the day.
Stay connected - Be mindful that with a lot of people in one place, mobile phone signal can weaken, so it's a good idea to have a backup plan by discussing a designated meeting spot. Consider leaving together from the offset or arrange a meeting spot a bit further away from the main stretch

Children’s Citizens Assemblies
XR families have kindly shared these resource packs for structuring Children’s Assembles. CA’s can help get the creative juices flowing and build consensus about the ideas to take forward. Children can run the workshops.
Postcards to politicians
Children can try to engender politicians to take action. Politicians say they can’t do anything without a mandate from the people, including saving the world. So in our current system we need to make our mandate loud and clear.
