Müritz (Germany), 21th – 25th June 2017
The idea behind MOVE UTOPIA: To bring together all those who believe that we can overcome existing conditions of human separation and work towards new forms of conviviality: “New kinds of relationships can come into being by openly sharing and communicating needs and talents. We want to develop new forms of living together to make a good life for all possible. Conscious of our dependence on this earth and also on each other, we are deeply convinced that we can live together according to our needs and abilities. We celebrate the experiment of living utopia to confront the global issues of our time, beyond nations”.

Degrowth Summer School in Rhineland (Germany)
Rhineland (Germany), 18th – 23rd August 2017
As in previous years, the third Degrowth Summer School will offer various intensive courses around the topic of degrowth.
It will take place on the Climate Camp in the Rhineland again, which runs from the 18th till 29th of August.
We can already say that the programme will cover pressing topics such as possible answers to the surge of right-wing populism in Europe and a socially just exit from coal.
Lausitzcamp in Eastern Germany/Poland
Tour, Lusatia coalfields, May 21-28
The big Ende Gelände actions are in the Rhineland coalfields this year,
but resistance must go on in Lusatia, too. This summer (May 21 – 28), we
are not camping in one place, but put our tents on bikes and cycle
through the mining region in Eastern Germany and Poland, visiting local
anti-coal initiatives on our way – connecting the dots, growing the
movement. There is no English website yet – get in touch for more information at email@example.com
Climate Camp in Austria
close to Vienna airport, May 24-28
Our struggle focuses on the need to shrink fossil airtravel and
associated (infra)structures as well as questioning the everpresent
focus on “green” growth. Very recent, there has been some major victory,
since the Federal Adminstrative Court ruled against the building of the
3rd runway at Vienna airport, regarding the legal acknowledgement of
climate change as a more important factor than some questionable jobs.
But since then, local industry and politics are running heavily against
the decision. We will continue to fight against airport expansion and
for system change. Welcome!
Aviation expansion is a red line – and red lines are not to be crossed!
To show this, we will have a big Red Lines Action on the 27th of May – close to the airport and with some noise and bicycles! Come all to our climate camp to get more details and participate!
Mass climate civil disobedience action in the Netherlands
Port of Amsterdam, Saturday June 24th
Something is brewing in the Western harbour of Amsterdam, the world’s

Rood, a new coalition calls for a massive civil disobedience action in
and around the Port of Amsterdam. We have no patience anymore. We give
the power to the people and draw a red line against the fossil industry!
There will also be a climate action camp from Thursday June 22 to Monday
June 26. Come as early as possible to prepare well!
