Here is the email I wrote for the gathering:

The next Climate Camp gathering is heading north to Scotland on April 5-6. The meeting/sleeping/socialising will all take place at Carnival Arts Centre, 34 Albion Street Glasgow. This is in Merchant City and about a ten minute walk from Buchanan Street bus station/Queen Street train
station. See this map.

Proposed agenda items should be in by Monday March 24th. See the Climate Camp website for guidelines on agenda items.

The venue and sleeping space are both accessible. Accommodation will be crash pad and available from Friday night. Should you really need a bed for some reason be sure to get in touch. If you do not let us know in advance, we cannot guarantee we’ll be able to find you an alternative.

The organising team is working hard to make the gathering as kid friendly as possible. There will be an early to bed sleeping space at another venue, and a kids space throughout the weekend. If you are planning to bring kids, please get in touch so we can better plan activities.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided Saturday and Sunday. Everything will be vegan and mostly organic. Get in touch if you have allergy concerns.

We will be asking for a suggested donation (unless you really can’t afford it) of £5 to cover the venue and £10 to cover food. There will also be a travel pool. The idea is that people with more money or lower travel costs contribute towards the costs of people with less money or higher travel costs. Please contribute if you can afford it.

There will be a film night and introduction to Climate Camp on Friday evening. Also, exciting things are brewing for Monday. If you can stick around an extra day, bring your bike and join in on a critical mass to a site of some importance… Alternative transportation will be available for those who can’t or don’t want to bike.

It would be extremely useful if anyone planning on attending all or part of the weekend could let us know. This will help in buying food, booze and lots of other things too. RSVPs and all other queries/info should be directed to That is ‘gathering’ NOT
‘gatherings’ (the old email address has been nuked).

See you in Glasgow!!

I have been checking the ‘gathering@climatecamp’ email address and will continue until this gathering is over.
