Climate change is one of the biggest, and most complex, problems of our time. What can we do to prevent it? How can we achieve systematic change instead of climate change? What can we do to contribute to global climate justice? One possible practical answer to these challengers are climate camps, which have been around in several countries since 2007. At a climate camp, environmental activists can exchange ideas, plan campaigns, take part in workshops and live in their own little utopia. Would you like to see for yourself how a self-organised camp with solar energy, compost toilets and a colourful educational and cultural programme functions? There is an additional administration fee of 50€ for participants who are not from Germany. Your workcamp will help with setting up, maintaining and taking down the climate camp in the Rhineland region. At the same time, as a participant of this workcamp you will have the opportunity to learn more about the environment and climate with numerous workshops and lectures, as well as to develop your practical skills (such as how to build a solar-powered shower). As part of the programme during the climate camp, political campaigns such as protests against coal mining, will also be taking place. With its three large [[]]] for coal extraction, the Rhineland is the largest source of CO2 in Europe. For this reason, environmental activists chose this location to start their climate camp in order to be directly in the middle of the action and be able to protest against the damage to the environment. Last autumn, the protests gained a great deal of attention from the medial when one thousand people (successfully!) protested in favour of preserving the forest in Hambacher, which was supposed to be destroyed in order to expand one of the coal extraction sites. The climate camp in Rhineland will be taking place for the tenth time in 2019, and there are now cultivated alliances with people from the surrounding villages, who are gradually forced to leave their homes because of coal mining, or who are suffering from environmental pollution right on their doorstep. Come and join us at the climate camp if you want to get know environmental activists from other countries, gain new theoretical knowledge and practical skills for a sustainable future and contribute to a grassroots self-organised camp! Information about the studying component: alongside the workshops and lectures at the climate camp (which you are welcome to attend), further workshops will be organised for you on topics such as alternative lifestyles, social movements, climate policy in Germany etc. Before you get to the campsite, you will meet the rest of your group and your group leaders in Cologne, where you will stay for 2 nights in “nature friendly” accommodation. There you will have the time to get to know each other as a group before driving to Erkelenz to help set up the climate camp. You will need to think about whether you will be able to come to terms with these very rustic living conditions for the duration of the camp. The food will be mostly vegan, which means without any animal products such as milk, eggs, cheese or meat. The climate clamp is a politically leftist, grassroots, self-organised project with flat hierarchies and many plenary discussions.

You will be sleeping in 2-3 person tents at the climate camp, so you will be outside for the whole duration. You need to bring your own sleeping bags and thermal mats. The accommodation is as simple as possible. There are compost toilets and self-built solar-powered showers.
During the first few days we will be shopping and cooking together. At the climate camp, there will be a kitchen team providing us with vegan food three times a day. Besides this, there is a crêpe stand on-site as well as a small kiosk for snacks.

You will have the opportunity to take part in the workshops and cultural event organised by the climate camp. There will be film screenings, podium discussions and other cultural events, such as concerts. The towns of Erkelenz, Düsseldorf and Cologne are easily reachable with public transport and you can go on excursions there. There are 3 large coal extraction sites near to your camp, in Garzweiler, Hambach and Inden. From the nearby viewing platforms, you will be able to look at the largest machines in Europe, and the largest disruptions to the environment.

You should be interested in nature protection and conservation. City comforts such as warm showers and Wi-Fi will not always be available. A good knowledge of English is important to be able to follow and understand the workshops and lectures.
