‘I’d like to put the making of this zine into context. I’ve been an immigrant since I was a child, having been forcibly displaced from my home country because of a conflict that’s spanned enough generations and seen enough violence that our people’s diaspora is larger than the total population of some European nation-states that have existed for centuries.
I am no longer that child, but as I fully embody the choices that I have made in the early years of my adulthood, the things that I have come to accept and embrace about myself, my background, my identity and my trauma, that child’s curiosity and wish to go home has resurfaced…”

This guide contains decolonial perspectives and guidance on the topics of climate justice and accessibility. It has content from individual creators, which have drawn from their own experiences, beliefs, and practices to create their contribution pieces. Each text contains different approaches to decoloniality, dis*ability & climate justice and queerness.
As part of our Climate Justice and Accessibility Solidarity Campaign we present to you our hand out on these topics, filled with practical guidance to make our struggle more accessible. There are versions in German and in English. Happy sharing!
We are very happy to present to you our Learning documentation Guide, as part of the project that focused on how to document different actions, realities and struggles, amplifying voices that are often not being heard.
The aim of this guide is to provide methods for young activists to use so that their videos can be as valuable as possible in visibilizing grassroots struggles as well as exposing abuse, both aiding in the bringing about justice. This resource will help ensure that more cameras in more hands can lead to more exposure, stronger movements and greater justice.
This handbook provides readers with a map of the work of decolonization so that they can explore at their leisure. In whatever political work you are doing, and whichever context you are in, we hope that this handbook helps you approach the work of decolonization more easily.
We are very happy to present our handbook “How to create an intersectional movement”, which captures the lessons that emerged from three different panel discussions at the BIPoC Climate Justice Conference. We believe that these discussions were helpful and very relevant. We hope it can ignite fruitful discussion for the climate justice movement and other movements in the coming years. This handbook was created in collaboration with the BIPoC Climate Justice Network.
Share it around so that our social movements for climate justice are inspired with valuable input towards make it more accessible.

This collective process was documented in this zine, it also contains self-care tools. We are very happy to invite you to the two release events we have planned in Berlin, on the 19th of November, and in Barcelona, on the 10th of December. Each event will count with the presence of two of the participants of our gathering, who will be presenting the zine, as well as leading a group discussion about the need for collective self-care for young queer BIPoC activists.
