WHAT IS THE CLIMATE SOCIAL CAMP?

The Climate Social Camp is an event created by an assembly of various local movements in Turin, the last week of July 2022.

 

The Climate Social Camp won't be just a camping, but also a moment of discussion and confrontation, focusing on the fight against the climate and social crisis. 

 

We will have at our disposal a huge part of one of Turin's main parks to set up the Climate Social Camp. It will be a week of meetings, activities, music, concerts and so much more that will allow us to experience together the spirit of community and solidarity that animates our struggle.

 

In fact, the Climate Social Camp will be a space and moment of debates, working groups and activities aiming to challenge the present and the future international mobilization. It will be an opportunity to get to know each other, share experiences of social hardships and strategies of resistance, and build a intersectional and international network. 

 

Organising the Climate Social Camp, we are already experiencing a lot of great feedbacks. The horizontal confrontation, discussions, shared praxis and methods, between the various movements that are organising the Camp, has already been an important achievement for us. 

The idea is to create a similar, but enlarged, space during the Camp. The aim is strengthening solidarity between different local struggles, that each of us is conducting in our own territories, while integrate tools and knowledge on which the consequences of the climate and social crisis are and who bears its responsabilities.

 

The topics of debate will be many and the programme will be stimulating. Campaigns for environmental protection, struggles about production and social reproduction spheres, and reflections on ecological transition will be intertwined in these five intense days. We are contacting as many movements as we can, but we may not be able to reach everyone. So, if we can't, you can: you are all invited!

How can you reach Turin?

 

🚆 By train

You can reach Turin by train quite easily from different parts of Europe. The main stations in Turin are Torino Porta Susa and Torino Porta Nuova, which are both very central. 

Cost: the cost depends on where you arrive but can be very high. Our advice, if you have the possibility, is to buy a 4-day Interrail Global Pass (more info here: https://www.interrail.eu/it/interrail-passes/global-pass), which allows you to make the round trip (you can travel for a total of 4 days in a month) at an affordable price. The cost is €185.

 

🚌 By coach

The main bus station in Turin is the Corso Vittorio Emanuele bus station. The most useful companies for getting there by bus, in general, are Flixbus and Bla Bla Bus.

Cost: the cost can sometimes be lower than the train, but there is no option to buy a pass like the Interrail.

 

✈️ By plane

Travelling by plane, as we know, is a very impactful way of travelling in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. We encourage you, if possible, to use other methods of transport to reach Turin.

Logistical information: Turin airport is called Caselle Airport, and is about 20 minutes away from the city.

The Climate Social Camp will be held at the Parco della Colletta in Turin. The camp will last from Monday 25 July to Friday 29 July, but if necessary you can also stay the day before and the day after. Meals will be prepared and served by us, so you don't have to bring your own food.

What do you need to bring? 

  1. Tent

  2. Sleeping bag

  3. Mattress

  4. Water bottle

  5. Tableware (washable and reusable plates, cutlery and glasses)

  6. Electric torch

  7. Sun cream

  8. Anti-mosquito

 

And finally, bring a lot of desire to discuss and dance! At the campsite there will be plenty of debates open to all, and in the evenings concerts with artists from all over the world!

 

FACILITIES & BUILDINGS

 

The facilities will be located near the campsite and near the university, where the working tables of the International meeting will be held. Things to bring are more or less similar to those at the campsite, but you don't need a tent. Again, don't worry if you arrive a day before the start of the event or leave a day later.
