The camp is a continuation of the tradition of No Border camps on Eastern borders of the Fortress Europe, which were organized between 1998 and 2005. This year the international movement makes a major step forward, as the camp in Ukraine will be first ever organized on the territory of the former Soviet Union.
First of all it will be a camp for communication, networking, planning and popular education. Some of its aims are: 1) To create a ground for communication between activists from Eastern and Western Europe and from everywhere else. 2) To attract attention to the racist policy on migration. 3) To create contact with local people in the region of Transcarpathia.
The noborder network is sending out this call: "We already started to form a program of workshops, discussions, practical trainings etc. But we prefer the program of the camp to be formed by the people who will come there. So if you've got something to share or contribute - please let us know now! It can be any topic you are interested in, not only the main topic of the camp."

The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
