Climate Camp, Boot Camp for the Environment, London, August 26-September 2
While kids are heading home from Summer camp and getting ready to go back to school, some of the Green crowd in the UK is about to join Climate Camp, a boot camp for the environment taking place (taking over) in London from August 26 to September 2.
I was intrigued by the effort but not sure what to make of it so I read Q & A: Climate Camp by James Randerson (Guardian, August 25) for some guidance.
On What is Climate Camp? he offers the following answer:
They blend technology (Twitter and text messaging) with activism and announce that after meeting at various locations around London chosen for their symbolism, they will 'swoop' to the center of the city around midday on Wednesday.
So not a day to be driving around that part of London or taking a cab.
The Tube would be wise.
