Climate Camps are the heart of the movement. It's the places where we gather, to teach ourselves, to grow our networks, to prepare actions and live the alternatives that we are striving for. Camps have workshops, music, action trainings, debates, campfires, practical building stuff, skill-shares. Here, we take matters into our own hands: from dishwashing to system change. So far we know of seven camps in Europe this year – in Austria, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Belgium, France, West and East Germany!

A lot of camps go with actions that draw a red line. To show: until here and no further – it's up to us to mark the end of destruction!

Information about camps and actions can be found on the respective websites or – at a glance - on the website of the climate justice action network:


*Climate Camp close to Vienna airport, Austria, May 24-28*
*Aviation is a red line*

Our struggle focuses on the need to shrink fossil airtravel and associated (infra)structures as well as questioning the everpresent focus on "green" growth. Very recent, there has been some major victory, since the Federal Adminstrative Court ruled against the building of the 3rd runway at Vienna airport, regarding the legal acknowledgement of climate change as a more important factor than some questionable jobs. But since then, local industry and politics are running heavily against the decision. We will continue to fight against airport expansion and for system change. Welcome!

Aviation expansion is a red line – and red lines are not to be crossed! To show this, we will have a big Red Lines Action on the 27th of May – close to the airport and with some noise and bicycles! Come all to our climate camp to get more details and participate!

*Lausitzcamp on Tour, Lusatia coalfields, Eastern Germany/Poland, May 21-28*

The big Ende Gelände actions are in the Rhineland coalfields this year, but resistance must go on in Lusatia, too. This summer (May 21 – 28), we are not camping in one place, but put our tents on bikes and cycle through the mining region in Eastern Germany and Poland, visiting local anti-coal initiatives on our way - connecting the dots, growing the movement. There is no English website yet – get in touch for more information:

*Mass climate civil disobedience action in the port of Amsterdam, Netherlands, June 22-June 26th*

Code Rood, a new coalition calls for a massive civil disobedience action in and around the Port of Amsterdam on June 24th. We have no patience anymore.

Come as early as possible to prepare well! More info will come soon.

A mass action of civil disobedience (Ende Gelände) to block the mining infrastrucutre. A red line action around the Hambach Forest. And lots more! From August 18 – 29, there will be camp space(s) for networking, education, arts and actions… and trying out tomorrow’s society right now – social, ecological and based on grassroots democracy. At the camp the Degrowth Summer School will take place for the third time, where the concept of degrowth is put into action: By learning practical skills and analyzing political and economic developments.
