Climate Camp in Germany (near Cologne)

From August 3rd – 12th 2012, climate activists will organize a climate camp in the coal mining area near Cologne. Here, the energy giant RWE is producing around 10 % of Germany’s CO2 emissions. The climate camp welcomes activists and interested people from different countries and political backgrounds to come together in order to learn from each other and build up a movement to stop climate change.  Come and join us for workshops, actions, cultural exchange and living alternatives!

Join the international Barrio “Hot Times”!!!

What is a barrio? Barrios are mainly used to structure camps into different parts – similar to city districts in which people come together to share certain ideas, visions or topics.

Who we are?…We are the children and youth campaign “Hot Times” (“Heiße Zeiten”) of the One World Network of North-Rhine-Wesphalia (Eine Welt Netz NRW e.V.) in Germany. We are committed to global justice and sustainability. We offer school- and non-school programs as well as events like the annual climate camp.

Our aim with the climate camp is to build up an international learning and action community in the medium term. In our barrio we will focus on issues of climate justice. We will offer workshops on e.g. human rights violations in Colombian hard coal and gold mines; climate change in rural Bangladesh; paper producing industries in Indonesia; international climate politics; youth empowerment and social media and much more…The barrio language will be English. Thus, all our workshops will be offered in English. For non-Germans we will arrange for people who can translate the German-speaking workshops and speeches of the other barrios at the camp.
