You´re tired of winter? We are, too, so we decided to throw a party. Because the camp is still so far away and we can’t wait for the summer to come, we’ll heat up the old VHS (Kasernenstraße 50) in Bonn on Saturday. We start at noon with an exciting series of workshops on the […]
Yay, we got a camp date! So mark it bold on the calendar: From 30.07. – 13.08.2020 the 11th Rhineland Climate Camp will take place!

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.
