Ground Control – Agriculture & Climate Action
July 1-8 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
This summer we will break new ground for action! During a weeklong camp near Amsterdam we will get together to stimulate a different agricultural system and counteract climate change. 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 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. Join Ground Control for an inspiring week of fun and action.
July 4 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The Amsterdam Climate Games is back … and this year it’s bigger, bolder, stronger. Again you can take part in this mega action game with your own team. The stakes are high with Amsterdam intending to expand its port in support of a growing fossil fuel industry. The city is siding with the losing team and playing more for profit and economic value than our climate and health! It’s time to interfere with the gameplay of politicians and companies and learn to take action and play the game ourselves! Your team’s goal is to secure a place in Climate Games history by winning one of our highly esteemed awards, while our goal together is to free Amsterdam from polluting industries.
