Since its first public action on October 31, 2018 urging the UK government to declare a climate and ecological emergency and commit to reducing emissions to net zero by 2025, the movement has grown into an international movement with over 363 groups active in 59 countries around the world.

The museum, with footfall of millions every year, has acquired the open-source Extinction Symbol, the Declaration that accompanied their first act of Rebellion, and flags carried during mass demonstrations.
