1% Climate Camp

In 2008 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 2009 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.

In 2009 the Camp for Climate Action returns to London to prepare for an autumn of mass action in the run up to the UN climate talks in Copenhagen this December. While banks and politicians fail to deliver the necessary action on climate change, the Climate Camp will be creating an alternative vision based on real democracy. Because the future is not what it used to be.

Climate Camp equips participants in the skills and knowledge needed to take action against climate change – from building a wind turbine, to understanding the science, to training on direct action.
