That’s how fast it can go. From field to camp – and back again to a field in only 12 days. The 10th climate camp in the Rhineland took place from 15th to 27th August on the well-known site at Lahey Park near Erkelenz. Now it’s over again – and we try to record what […]
Actually you wanted to get involved in the preparation of the climate camp, but didn’t make it in time? Or are you coming to the Climate Camp for the first time and don’t even know how to get involved? At the moment there is a special demand for people for these tasks (you can find […]
You have a topic that fits well to the Klimacamp and that you have always wanted to share with many people? Do you love music, acrobatics or other magical tricks that should not be missing at the Klimacamp? Or maybe you know people who know someone, who in turn know someone who has always wanted […]
The 2018 Climate Camp took place from 11th till 22nd of August. We built up the camp together, had networking, education, arts and actions… and we tried out tomorrow’s society – social, ecological and based on grassroots democracy. 2018’s camp was smaller and less action-orientated than 2017’s. In our debates we focussed on the future of the Rhenish lignite region and on reflecting the practices, structures and strategies of the climate justice movement. And at the end we took the camp down together, too.
What’s the Climate Camp?
Climate Camps are the heart of the climate movement. Just like at other Climate Camps, in the Rhineland we…
- …live alternatives together: anti-authoritarian self-organisation, our own energy supply, compost toilets, music and much more!
- …create networks. At the camp it’s not only people who meet, but also movements.
- …educate ourselves. There are courses, workshops, open space, panel discussions, spaces and events for children and teenagers, and a cultural programme. We deal with a diverse range of topics, from theoretical analysis of climate change to practical stuff like building a windmill.
- …develop actions. There have always been actions protesting against coal over the last few years at the Climate Camp. In 2015 Ende Gelände took place here, 2016 the action lab was our guest and in 2017 there were many different actions as part of the Action Days in the Rhineland.
