Dear all, Against all rumours that there would be no climate camp in the Rhineland this year, we officially and proudly declare: Of course there will be a climate camp, and to be exact, it will take place from August 11-22! This year we have special focuses: For one, we want to take a moment […]
You’re new? The beginning of the year is the best time to get to know our organizing structures, to help shape them and to develop strategies for climate justice! It doesn’t matter whether you already have concrete ideas or just want to check things out – just come along! If you’re not on the climate […]
We’d like to invite you to 2018’s first organisational meeting of the annual Climate Camp in the Rhineland coal field. It will be hosted at the SubstAnZ on Osnabrueck from the 26th to 28th of January 2018. We’ll start on Friday at 6.30pm with dinner, the plenary begins at 7.30pm. On Sunday we’ll finish at […]
The 2018 Climate Camp will take place from 11th till 22nd of August. We will build up the camp together, have networking, education, arts and actions… and we’ll try out tomorrow’s society right now – social, ecological and based on grassroots democracy. This year’s camp will be smaller and less action-orientated than last year’s. In our debates we want to focus 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’ll take 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.
