Camp for Climate Action 2009
26 Aug – 2 Sept, London
With the city lights in sight, you pitch your tent alongside thousands of others. Another future emerges from the ground. Welcome to the Climate Camp.
Last year thousands of people camped at Kingsnorth coal fired power station, casting a big question mark over new coal in the UK. Then in the spring of this year thousands of people swooped on the city whilst the G20 was meeting in London: tents were pitched and the carbon trading centre in the hub of the financial district shut its doors for the day.
The Camp for Climate Action returns to London to prepare for an autumn of mass action in the run up to the United Nations climate talks in Copenhagen this December.
While our banks and politicians fail us, Climate Camp will be creating a vision of real democracy. Because the future is not what it used to be.
Team up. Get trained. Take action!
Build: Learn how to construct a wind turbine, erect a marquee, or cook for two hundred people. We aim to make the camp a model of sustainable living, and we need you to help us do it.
Meet: Concerned about climate change? You
