digital Transborder Summer Camp: Transborder! Freedom of movement and equal rights in (post) Corona times

Invitation to the digital Transborder Summer Camp from 15.07-18.07.2020 – Call for registration (deadline 10.07.2020)

One year ago, we met at the ZAD near Nantes for the Transborder Summer Camp: more than 500 activists came together for amazing exchange and mutual inspiration. Now, we want to invite you for a digitalTSC from the 15-18.07.2020.

With the digitalTSC we want to provide a space to re-discuss strategies and challenges in (post) Corona times: we want to continue the discussions and networking debates that took place at the TSC, to understand where we are now 1 year later. And importantly, we want to propose a transnational decentralized mobilization for the beginning of September: on the 5th anniversary of the “March of Hope” – and the historic breakthrough against the border regime in 2015 during the long summer of migration along the Balkan route.

The digitalTSC will take place in different online meetings. Below you find a first program. Of course, everybody is welcomed to join as many sessions as they want, however, considering how exhausting online meetings are for many, we hope that people might join the two (bigger) plenary sessions and one or two (smaller) workshops. The digitalTSC will take place in English and French with translations.

We ask everyone who wants to join to register with a short email to our contact address ( You only need a stable internet connection! Please include the language(s) you need/can speak (English and/or French) and please also list in which panels or workshops you will participate. In order to prepare the online infrastructure for all the meetings and to organize translation, we need this information latest until 10.07.2020.

On 12th of July we will send to out the final program as well as the technical information and links to join the digitalTSC. Please refer to our website for short term updates.

p.s. If you want to read up on the Trans Border Summer Camp last year, you can find a brochure online:
