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, and learn new things. Amongst other things, it’s all about living practically within a utopia, in other wards organising daily life in the camp together – from cleaning the toilets to chopping vegetables – as well as making communal decisions through democratic processes. 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? Your workcamp will help with setting up, maintaining and taking down the climate camp in the area around Leipzig. 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. The climate camp in the Leipzig area takes place south of the city of Leipzig in the small picturesque village of Pödelwitz. In the past there were more than 100 people living in the village, but now there are only a few inhabitants left due to the coal company MIBRAG exerting pressure over the last few years – threatening to excavate the village for the nearby lignite mine. But with the wave of solidarity, there is still hope for the remaining Pödelwitz villagers, not least thanks to the very successful first climate camp in 2018. Both villagers and activists are determined to put an end to the dirtiest and most damaging of all fossil energies: not only so that Pödelwitz remains intact, but also so that the villages and cities in the global south can continue to prosper, since they are also massively affected by the climate crisis. The broad education programme at the camp is about how we can fight for global climate justice and how a good life for all is possible. The Degrowth Summer School, which works in close co-operation with the camp, places a large focus on so-called degrowth or the post-growth perspective. This means alternatives to the current predominantly polluting, growth-oriented and misanthropic economic and social systems. Taking place over several days, a course consisting of podium debates will look into how a solidary world without the need to grow might look like. 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 by you and for you on topics such as alternative lifestyles, social movements, climate policy in Germany etc. There is an additional administration fee of 50€ for participants who are not from Germany.

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. Before travelling to the campsite, you will meet the other participants and your group leaders in Leipzig.
Vegan food, fair trade, bio, seasonal. Meals will be catered for during the camp, but for the first 2 days in Leipzig you will have the opportunity to cook together and to share traditional meals from your home country.

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 town of Leipzig is easily reachable with public transport and you can go on excursions there. You will also spend the first 2 days of the camp with the rest of the group in Leipzig. You can walk or cycle to the nearby United Schleenhain opencast mine, which is worth a visit to understand the dimension and impact of lignite mines. As another leisure opportunity, a trip to the nearby lake can be just the thing, since it promises the chance to cool off on hot summer days.

You should be interested in nature protection and conservation. City comforts such as warm showers and Wi-Fi will not always be available, since so many people will be camping together in a field. We will be living in tents during the camp.
