20150611_Groundcountrol_ClimategamesThursday June 11th 2015, Info night and benefit for Ground Control – agriculture and climate action camp & The Climate Games, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm

* What: Ground Control – an agriculture & climate action camp and the Climate Games
* When: Camp from July 1-8, 2015, Climate Games on July 4th.
* Where: near Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and in the harbour.
This summer we will break new ground for action…

During a week long camp near Amsterdam we will get together to stimulate a different agricultural system and counteract climate change.

Since the environmental question entered the political debate, countless quick fixes have been developed to deal with some of the symptoms of climate change, leaving its root causes untouched. In December the “world leaders” will meet in Paris for COP21; yet another international climate summit after the previous failures. Meanwhile, the city of Amsterdam is planning to expand the activity in its port, which already is the second largest throughput of coal in Europe and hosts some of the world’s most polluting companies.

The stakes are too high for us to remain silent observers in this game: we refuse to let corporate interests gain new ground. This time, we will play by our rules.

Come prepared for an inspiring week full of workshops, trainings, discussions and actions, including the Climate Games. Bring your energy, ideas, friends and motivation! We will join forces in our struggle for an alternative system based on justness and solidarity.

We aim for:
– Convergence of people and networks.
– Effective change.
– Resistance and action!

Ground control welcomes bookworms and practical people – from the most experienced to the newcomers in the field. It offers a space to make meaningful connections and prepare for (future) struggles.
