ZAGREB, 17 August, 2022 - The Climatopia regional activist camp and the Adriatic Climate Camp will be held in September, and participants can find out what climate justice is and how to become an active part of the climate movement, the website said on Wednesday.

Climatopia will be held in Vojnić, Karlovac County on 10-16 September, organised by the Green Action NGO. It will bring together about 30 young people from Croatia, the Western Balkans, and Norway.

Green Action has invited everyone aged 18-35, fluent in English and very interested in environmental and climate issues, to join them.

The camp's theme is to link the climate movement and innovative climate activism.

The programme includes a day-long visit to Krk Island in the northern Adriatic, where the town of Njivice will host the Adriatic Climate Camp on 14-18 September, Croatia's first climate camp dedicated to building a strong climate movement in Croatia and Europe.

This camp follows two climate marches organised in Croatia by Extinction Rebellion Zagreb.

The two climate camps have been organised because activists want an urgent switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources and to appeal for the use of Croatia's sun and wind for clean energy and energy independence.
