How we work
Over the last two years The Camp For Climate Action has evolved an effective way of working, which enables us to include as many people as possible in the decision making process, whilst letting the people doing the work get on with it with a minimum of interference.
The decision making body of the Camp is the series of national gatherings, which take place about once a month. Each meeting has a prepared agenda which is put together by the local group running each gathering, with assistance from the Process Group who have overall responsibility for the Camp’s administrative systems.
All decisions at gatherings are made by means of consensus and run by a team of people trained in the facilitation of consensus meetings.
The decisions of the gatherings are implemented by one or more of the Climate Camp’s working groups. Each group is accountable to the Climate Camp as a whole, but they generally act autonomously to make their “bit” of the Camp happen.
Another aspect of the de-centralised nature of Climate Camp is the network of local groups which carry on Climate Camp’s work in towns and cities up and down the country throughout the year. These groups also form the basis of the neighbourhoods at the Camp itself.
