Climate Camp describes itself as "a place for anyone who wants to take action on climate change; for anyone who’s fed up with empty government rhetoric and corporate spin; for anyone who’s worried that the small steps they’re taking aren’t enough to match the scale of the problem; and for anyone who’s worried about our future and wants to do something about it".
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.
