Given the volume of applications we receive we will prioritize communications with those who either have been selected or have been placed on the waitlist. If you do not hear from us by June 10th then that means we have reached the maximum of invitations.
  • How much will it cost or what am I expected to cover?
    Admission to the camp is free and the host organizations are covering accommodation, food and transportation within the country of Lebanon. Participants are asked to cover the costs of travel to Lebanon and any VISA-related costs (if needed). There may be some financing available to cover the cost of travel to Lebanon but this will be assessed based on need on a case-by-case basis.
  • How do I know if the Climate Justice Camp is right for me?
    The Climate Justice Camp is a platform for organizers and community builders to build relationships with other climate justice and intersectional advocates, to develop skills through daily workshops that can be applied in local work, to share best practices and lessons learnt from their local organizing and to co-create and collaborate on cross-region and cross-issue strategies and tactics. In short, it’s a space where organizers from the Global South and Frontline Communities come to build community and deepen their impact in the fight for Climate Justice.
