We would like to invite you to the Climate Camp Leipziger Land 2022.
This year the camp will take place in the second half of July. The camp will offer a broad programme of workshops, discussions, music and art. This year, we will again focus on mobility (in)justice and the expansion of Leipzig/Halle Airport.
Climate camps are at the heart of the climate justice movement. They are a place for networking and education of different political and social groups working for ecological sustainability and social justice. They are also a place where alternatives to the current capitalist society can be tried out and our protest can be given emphasis through direct action and civil disobedience. The goal of the climate justice movement is a good life for all without harming the planet. To achieve this, we aim for radical systemic change.
Climate camps are built on 4 pillars:
- Alternative living
- Direct action
This is how you can imagine the climate camp:
A large meadow with many tents. Communal cooking, workshops, music, a good atmosphere and lively discussions. A space for inspiration and political action!
Near Rackwitz on a beautiful meadow.

Why protest against the airport expansion?
The action and protest alliance “Transform LEJ” is calling for actions against the expansion of Leipzig/Halle Airport (LEJ) from 28 – 31 July.
It is about all the injustices that are evident in the expansion of the airport:
- brutal deportations from Germany
- DHL and Amazon’s greed for profit exacerbate climate change, especially at the expense of people in the global south
- arms exports all over the world
- precarious working conditions for employees
- aircraft noise and displacement of local residents
We will not allow DHL and the government to cast the capitalist growth mania in concrete with the expansion and fly us even more cargo planes further and further into the climate crisis. Come with us: prevent the expansion and fight to build a society of solidarity. We say: Transform LEJ!
The climate camp is a grass-roots democratically organized process in which most people take part voluntary (i.e. they do not get paid). A lot of our infrastructure, such as the streaming platform, is provided by supporters. Nevertheless, also a decentralized camp costs a lot of money. We pay for speakers, artists, server costs and much more.
