What to bring? Important information from Action Logistics Team

As mentioned before, self-responsibility is especially important this year! Althougha mobile canteen kitchen will delight us with its usual delicious foodit is possible that their capacities will not always be sufficient if soooo many people are actually actively on the move for the climate. Therefore prepare yourself with food and drink for the length of the action you are planning to join.

The same applies to overnight stays at the camp: Here you will need your own sleeping tents, in the action you may need a sleeping mat and sleeping bag if you are considering staying overnight. Since it is June and we have of course ordered the best weather, sun protection (sunscreen, sun sails, etc. – no greasy cream) and especially WATER will be very important.

And one more request: Bring as little as possible with you that causes garbage and take the unavoidable garbage back with you. Garbage organisation and garbage separation at the camp is a lot of work!

Connect with people who don’t go into action, but stay in the camp. Prepare yourselves for the fact that individual or whole affinity groups (depending upon action level) could land in the detention centre (Gesa). Discuss before the action within your affinity group how the things you leave behind at the camp can find their way back to you (meeting point, exchange emergency contacts of friends, etc.). Otherwise there will be a depot for the remaining items and “wardrobe tokens” to mark them. Please make sure to attach them to your things (especially your tent) at the camp. It is important that your luggage is as compact and recognizable as possible.

But even more important is a good agreement in the affinity group, whether it is about the supply or the luggage question. By taking on responsibility and organizing yourself, you will relieve the camp and logistics structures tremendously!

We have prepared a packing list to help you find your way around.

With many greetings from your action logistics team
