There won’t be a flash radio crew at this year’s Climate Camp at Kingsnorth. No need! because there is the magnificent Climate Camp radio and we will support them as good as we can.

Alongside camp announcements, the shows will cover happenings on and off the camp, and discuss relevant issues, We welcome people who want to ‘Be the Media’ by helping with production or providing audio; swing by the media tent if you would like to get involved. One of the camp’s core aims is education and we aim provide this through participation, creating content, and our skills share workshop.

The show will be streamed to the internet and made available on the Climate Camp website as well as other alternative media sources. It will also be archived and available for download or podcast as well, so there’s no excuse for missing it.

The Tenant Oral History Project: pilot a rampART 2.2

The Tenant Oral History Project

The Tenant Oral History Project is an initiative aiming to document experiences of people living in rented accommodation, using audio recordings and making it available to the public via the internet and the British Library. The project will be conducted in the most open way, publishing all our materials and themes we aim to cover. Anybody can download our guidelines and conduct their own interviews. Via the internet teams across the UK can contribute and upload their own interviews.

Interviewees will talk chronologically about their experiences, starting with the time when they got their first own place, through to today or until they left rented accommodation.

Interviews will be conducted as a conversation between one interviewer and the interviewee. The interviewer will ask occasional questions, trying to keep the interview on track and on topic.

Themes aiming to be covered:

  • finding a place

  • viewing properties

  • making a decision/choosing a place

  • estate agents before the contract

  • being interviewed as a tenant

  • references/guarrantors

  • the tenancy contract

  • paying the deposit

  • inventory

  • pre-existing furniture

  • moving in

  • making it your own

  • estate agents after signing the contract

  • initial snags/promises made

  • repairs

  • management of the property

  • paying the rent

  • interacting with the landlord

  • bills

  • former tenants

  • giving notice

  • moving out

  • getting the deposit back

Climate Camp 2007 at Heathrow

We were at the Climate Camp from August 14-21 at Heathrow in 2007.

There were 8 days of inspiring workshops, information and skill-sharing, debates and a real example of a functioning low impact living village for just over 1,000 people at its largest capacity.

Residents set up their tents in neighbourhoods which also automatically meant they were part of that community and were able to attend neighbourhood meetings which were held everyday to organise the camp and the direct actions were could do as a neighbourhood.

In this podcast we focus in on one direct action which took place at the BAA offices at Bath Road in Heathrow. We were there for 24 hours. We interviewed several people some of whom who were penned in at other actions and this podcast gives a flavour of how the day went on Sunday 19th August 2007, the Day of Action.
