1| Come to the Climate Camp:
(Climate) Camps are the heart of the climate movement. There will be workshops, action trainings, discussions, building windmills, music. Here we breathe the sweet scent of change and feel that we can empower ourselves to build a social, just and ecological society!
2| End Coal – at the right time at the right place!
The Rhineland lignite mining area with its 5 dirty power plants and 3 open cast mines is the biggest source of emissions in Europe. Here we can grab evil by its roots: Here we can stop coal exploitation! Take part in the actiondays of Ende Gelände (14. – 16.08.)!
3| Take part in the Degrowth Summer School at the Climate Camp
The degrowth and climate justice summer school is a project following the international Degrowth Conference in Leipzig 2014. Here concrete approaches will be developed to practically and politically implement Degrowth.
4| Don’t trust the authorities nor the COPs: Time to change things yourself!
We take responsibilty to fight for climate justice worldwide. We build up alternative projects and resist against destructive industries. Let’s work together! Together we are struggling against the capitalist and growth based system – System Change not Climate Change!
5| Refugees Welcome!
Storms, droughts and floods which are caused by climate change destroy the livelihood of many people. To fight against climate change also means to fight for the good life and in solidarity with the affected. For a world where people can decide freely where to go or stay!
As regards to risks and courses of action, ask your affinity- or local political group!

Where the camp will be exactly, will be published shortly before it starts – so please keep yourself updated!
On the camp there will be quite a lot which allows as many people as possible to participate and take action within the political life: kids care, translation/interpretation, legal support are only some of them!

On the camp there will be the Degrowth in Action: Climate Justice – Summer School (08. – 14.08.2015)
The programme of the Summer School consists of courses, keynotes and panel disucssions on a large variety of topics. For more information: https://www.degrowth.de/en/summer-school-2015/
Last but not least: For the last weekend of the camp (14. – 16.08.), „Ende-Gelände“ calls for an action of civil disobidience!
While some will protest at the edge of the mine, others will block the diggers and other infrastructure in the mine. Together we will force RWE – the energy corporation running the mine – to stop the diggers. Our action will be an image of diversity, creativity and openness. Everyone – those experienced in protest and those who are not – can take part in the action. Ende Gelände for coal diggers and politics that destroy the climate!
