the silent climate parade will roll again through berlin this september!

remember, when we danced through berlin to demonstrate (for) a sustainable future? if not, read the description below to get and idea of what we’re all about! and check out the 2011 video (thx, laurent!) & the website!

the plan for 2012: on september 22, we’ll start the parade around alexanderplatz. get your headphones between 12-2pm, and then the parade will dance silently through east berlin from 2-5pm. we’re in the midst of organizing, so stay tuned via the fb event!

[EDIT: the DJs are confirmed! we proudly present:

but we need your support: we’re crowdfunding via betterplace to make this day possible again. can you help us to organize the best silent climate parade ever?

The Silent Climate Parade is a demonstration in Berlin to raise awareness about the failure to solve the climate change problem. With wireless headphones, quality DJs on electromobiles, signs, flyers, choreographies, and lots of enthusiasm, we dance silently through the streets in a fun, colorful and inspiring action to catch people’s attention. We do this to show that it’s possible to have fun, be climate friendly, and make a political statement at the same time. Let’s get moving!

this was the silent climate parade 2011 – berlin’s contribution to 350.org’s moving planet! people went to the streets in more than 175 countries at more than 2000 events to tell our leaders that we want to start moving towards a renewable future!

what a beautiful day it was in berlin! almost 1000 people joined us on that day that was full of sun and smiles to make our message clear! for more pictures from the parade click on the pictures below, they will take you to two different facebook albums:

it was a great experience to organize this event, and the day made up for all the work of organizing it. thanks to everybody who helped make this possible! hope we’ll dance again next year, maybe with even more people but hopefully just as silent and fun!

on september 24, more than 1500 people will dance silently through the streets of berlin for a renewable future! the music will come from a DJ on an electric car (powered by green energy!), but not played over loudspeakers, but through headphones! this is the silent climate parade!

on the 350.org international day of climate action ’moving planet’, we want to show that a renewable future can be fun, probably even should be fun! we need to be creative. be open for new experiences. for example with a demonstration that’s a little different- more colorful, less obtrusive, more fun.. and hopefully it will touch not only the brain but also the heart!

hundredthousands of people worldwide will be part of moving planet on september 24- join us and let’s start moving towards the renewable future!
