In about ten days the People’s Climate Summit will start (November 3-7!)! Climate activists from all over the world will meet in Bonn. A few days before the start of the official climate negotiations we are going to show that climate change is not only an issue for governments – but for all of us! The People’s Climate Summit will be a space for networking, meeting each other and inspiration.
On our website you will now get an impression of our exciting international programme:
At the summit, you will get to know the Pacific Climate Warriors, a group of climate activists from the Pacific whose existence is imminently threatened by rising sea levels. They will talk about how climate change affects their lives and cultures and will help to enrich the People’s Climate Summit with their strong messages and traditional ways of communication. Many groups from the Global South will speak out, who are fighting against the destruction of their livelihoods, and who are feeling the impacts of climate change and industrial mega projects. The Indigenous Environmental Network will talk about climate racism and the fights against Dakota Access Pipeline; we will discuss how a social-ecological transformation and just transition can succeed; you will learn about Gender Justice, straw bale building and anti-aviation protests – and a lot more:
Three big evening events (3.-5.11) will feature some of the key debates around climate justice, a phase out of fossil fuels and systemic change. During the day there will be time to take our messages and our protests to the streets – e.g. at the climate march on Nov 4. Monday and on Tuesday (6.+7.11.) there will be workshops all day in different locations in Bonn.
You find maps and directions to the venues here:
The central gathering place will be a circus tent. Here you will find an info-point and a kitchen that serves vegan food on donation basis. The exact location of the tent will soon be published on our website.
