In about ten days the People's Climate Summit will start (November3-7!)! 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, by the
impacts of climate change or by 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.

Gas industry firms are spending millions of euros influencing European policy makers to ensure that the continent continues to rely on fossil fuels for decades to come, according to a new report by the campaign group Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO).
