Summer School 2022

Summer School 2022 - Fridays for a Socialist Future
17.07.2022 to 24.07.2022

"Linking climate and social justice: Fridays for a Socialist Future!"

Activists from socialist organisations are invited to Werftpfuhl from 17 to 24 July.

This year’s Summer School will be all about the struggle against the immanent menace of climate change and the social upheavals we are experiencing in the capitalist world.

Global warming already affects our every day’s lives and its effects will worsen in the upcoming years, especially for the Global South. New resources are opened up every year which funnels more wealth to the rich and impels climate warming even more.

We will introduce ourselves in the facts behind climate science and continue by working on a vision for the socialist and ecological transformation we long for. Bringing together social, climate and global justice will be the key challenge our participants will work on in several themed tracks they can choose beforehand. This vision-making process will be accompanied by speaking about the realities in our communities, international exchange and many fun activities to make new friends from all over the world.

The seminar will be conducted in English, thus it will be rather hard to understand the instructions and fully participate if your English is limited. However, you may help each other out in delegations.
