Hydrogen and Climate Justice (I): Building Block of the Energy Transition or False Solution? (DE)

Hydrogen is at the centre of the European energy transition debate. The hydrogen transition in Germany and the EU will require large quantities of hydrogen imports from the Global South. Win-win narratives promise CO2 reductions, economic growth and independence from Russian natural gas in Europe in return for investments and development prospects in the Global South. In this workshop we want to introduce the hydrogen debate: What is hydrogen and why does it come in different colours? Why is there a hype about hydrogen right now? Which hydrogen strategies are industrialised countries pursuing? How are the advantages and disadvantages distributed in the emerging global hydrogen economy? Furthermore, we want to explore the question of what the developments around hydrogen mean from a climate justice perspective. Is hydrogen an important building block of a climate-just energy transition or a false solution? We do not assume any special previous knowledge. The workshop is a good preparation for the advanced workshop on hydrogen imports and energy coloniality.

The wrong way to nuclear power. About dangerous sham debates – Julian, Ausgestrahlt (DE)

Nuclear power is a problem both for the climate and for security of supply – in view of radioactive hazards, uranium mining and nuclear waste anyway. But with the fear of missing gas, the discussion about nuclear power is also back. Conservative and right-wing voices in particular are using the discussion to create a mood, to divert attention from their own energy policy mistakes and, with the nuclear phase-out, also to question the energy transition as a whole. Under the pretext of climate protection, pro-nuclear forces are trying to gain influence also in the climate movement. The workshop provides counter-arguments, discusses counter-strategies and offers space to network against debates on lifetime extensions and populist influence.

Privilege Workshop incl. Critical Whiteness (DE) – max. 14 persons

What are privileges anyway? What do my privileges mean for me, for others and in the context of our whole society? How can I reflect on my privileges and find a good way to deal with them? We want to discuss this and many other questions together in this workshop.
The focus will be on the emotional engagement with the topic and deal with difficult issues such as shame, guilt and anger. As privilege is a very broad field, we will try to lay the foundations together to continue this work alone, in groups and in circles of friends. During the workshop, we will of course take into account our own emotional capacities.

Hydrogen and Climate Justice (II): Imports and Energy Coloniality (DE)

The demand for green hydrogen is to be met by imports from countries of the Global South, especially Morocco, Namibia, Saudi Arabia, Chile or Brazil. In this advanced workshop, we take a closer look at the neocolonial dimension of the global hydrogen economy. To what extent is the search for hydrogen suppliers shaped by neocolonial patterns and aligned with the interests of green investors? What are the socio-ecological, economic and political impacts? Are there protests and resistance against hydrogen projects? Are there also points of contact for social movements and for emancipatory hydrogen futures? Together with you, we will first consider what we understand by energy coloniality and discuss this along the lines of case studies on hydrogen projects in Morocco, Namibia and DR Congo. In addition, we will consider what is important for energy transitions to be just, what a decolonial perspective brings to light here and what forms and practices transnational solidarity could take. The workshop does not require any special prior knowledge. However, the first workshop provides a good basis for knowledge. For the case studies, it would be good to have some knowledge of English.

Mapping intersections of the climate justice struggles and opportunities – departing in the Harbour of Hamburg (ENG, DE whisper)  max. 30 persons

In this workshop, we will start by unfolding the concept of Intersectionality of Struggles (Angela Davis) by listening to sound pieces recorded by the radio collective the Bridge Radio (DK). From there, we want to use visual mapping as a tool to understand how the struggles we are part of relates to international struggles for climate justice. As a case, we zoom in on the Harbour of Hamburg. Mapping doesn’t always lead to the creation of a “map”, instead we will approach mapping as a way to develop ideas and as a process to think collectively. Using our reflections and inputs from the day, we will assemble a collective visual piece. In the process we will trace the relations between places/people/histories. Our idea is that the mapping exercise will make obvious the oppression related to the Harbour of Hamburg, but also the counter movements for justice. Why we hope that the exercise opens up for ideas for actions between struggles and for envisioning new alliances.

Introduction to the Critique of Logistics- Logistics and the Climate Crisis – Building the Fossil Factory – Workshop from …ums Ganze! (DE)

Like in a fever dream, capitalism keeps everything in motion – everywhere, all the time. Before we can marvel at the immense collection of goods on the shelves, all the individual parts have travelled immense distances. Since its inception, capitalist profit logic has sought the global organisation and expansion of production. This principle began violently with colonial raids and the transatlantic slave trade. Within a short time, capitalism has transformed the entire earth into a fossil factory. Waterways, railways and roads connect raw material extraction, production, sales markets. This connection is logistics.

If we look at the capitalist mode of production from the perspective of its comprehensive re-production, then the infrastructure of this reproduction is logistics. In our workshop we want to look with you at what is commonly considered logistical infrastructure: container terminals, ports and airports, warehouses, oil pipelines and deep-sea data cables. Where has the so-called logistics revolution led? What does “containerisation” and “just-in-time” production mean? And why is the “global fossil factory” an equally global offensive against international workers?

COP27. How Germany is complicit in the greenwashing of Egypt’s military dictatorship! (DE, ENG)

In November 2022, Egypt will host the COP27. We want to say loud and clear that we refuse to use the COP27 and the struggle for climate justice to cover up the crimes of the Egyptian regime. In this workshop, we will talk about the struggle for human rights and environmental activism in Egypt and explore ways in which we can use the COP27 as a tool to put pressure on the Egyptian regime instead of whitewashing its atrocities.

Privilegien-Move/Walk Mio (DE)

The left scene should be a place that is accessible to all people, but the reality is different. Whether it’s the House Project or Youth Antifa, many groups are dominated by white, abled and much more privileged people from academic families. It has been said for ages that something has to change, that marginalised people should have better access to our structures. The first step towards creating truly low barrier spaces is to recognise the power relations in our structures. With the method Privilege move (often called privilege walk) we want to spatially illustrate how privileges are distributed on the camp and give individuals the opportunity to acknowledge and reflect on their position.

Solidarity will win – It’s all a question of organisation – IL Berlin (DE/ES)

Where does the climate justice movement stand today? What is left of our structures after two and a half years of pandemic? Disintegration and fraying are increasing, the number of active local climate groups and the amount of action is decreasing. We seem to be facing the big challenge of having to develop new strategies and reorganise, while the climate crisis is accelerating rapidly and we actually have no time to lose. What does this mean for our organising and practice at the local group level? How do we get dormant group processes going again and how do we build new groups? We would like to discuss this with you, based on your own practical experiences.

Woman Revolution Rojava – Women Defend Rojava (DE, EN whisper)

In northern and eastern Syria, a grassroots democratic project has been under construction since 2012, which ideologically refers to the Kurdish freedom movement. Its guiding idea is the concept of democratic confederalism, which is based on gender equality, grassroots democracy and ecology. The process of social transformation is also called the women’s revolution. But what constitutes it? A delegation of “Fighting Together” conducted interviews with women who answer this question from their perspective and describe the implementation of the women’s revolution in practice. Central in their narratives is the lived resistance, not only against military attacks on the region, but also against patriarchal structures in society. They tell of organising in councils, building an alternative economy and why autonomous, feminist organising is needed for this. Their practice shows a global perspective beyond state, power and patriarchy.

Hope dies at last?!/ Hope and Climate justice! – Kippunkt Kollektiv (DE, EN) 2:30 – 5:30 pm

At constant emissions, we have about 7 years left until we exceed our greenhouse gas budget for the 1.5°C target. Seven years in which almost unimaginable societal transformations are needed. How can we who are committed to the 1.5°C target still have hope? How can we who work for climate justice continue to communicate to the outside world that the good life is possible for all, while resignation, fear and exhaustion overwhelm some of us? And who or what are we actually hoping for?

Climate Justice & Environmental Racism & Rap (BIPoC Only) (DE)

The workshop will highlight different points of connection to history and historiography in order to situate the climate justice struggle in anti-racist and anti-colonial struggles. This will be based on rap songs and theoretical input, through which we want to approach a multiplicity of resistance.

What is our answer to the upcoming gas shortage and rising prices?– IL Berlin (DE)

“Do you want people to freeze in winter?” – is the reaction of many people when we take to the streets today against the construction of the LNG terminals. Playing off social crises against environmental crises is a popular political tool, and yet many people’s concerns are real. Gas prices are already rising by 300% for consumers and the question is who will be able to pay for it in the future. Those who already have too little suffer the most from rising gas prices. But what does this mean for us as a climate justice movement? How can we think social and ecological crises together and open up an anti-capitalist perspective in solidarity? Which industries currently consume how much gas and what role do LNG terminals play in short-term crisis management? We want to gather facts, discuss them together and make plans on how we can position ourselves as social movements for the autumn and winter.
