It was initiated by social movement activists and encouraged people to participate through protest & direct action. Climate Camp was local and national in orientation and concerned with environment & sustainability.

It was launched in August 2006 and is currently in "a state of flux", according to the Climate Camp Twitter feed @climatecamp. Thousands of people have been involved.
