Streets full of colour, recycled materials, dance, music, art and humour all in defence of the environment The Carnival for the Future is getting closer and this Saturday (24.09.2022) is already the day. ATTENTION: The police have overlooked more barriers on the route and the organiser has to change the route at short notice for safety reasons. This year, the parade will start at the Neukölln Town Hall and end at Spreewaldplatz (see route below).

Preparations have been underway since the beginning of the month in creative workshops, project days in various schools in Neukölln, and recycling workshops in cooperation with the Carnival of Cultures. Co-organiser Claire Chaulet promises: “This time we will march even wilder and louder through the streets for our planet!” More than twenty social and cultural organisations from Berlin will be performing for the second time to draw attention to the state of our planet.

“Our carnival is an action of subversive collective presence in public space. With our lively appearance in the streets, we want to put pressure on decision-makers to take more radical measures against the looming climate catastrophe and to find ways out of the ideology of constant growth and blind consumption,” says Claire Chaulet.

The procession this year will run from Neukölln Town Hall, via Hermannplatz, to Kottbusser Tor, and end at Oranienplatz-see below for changes! Rallies and performance will take place along the route. Along the way, ideas on economic and ecological growth in the climate crisis will be shared, accompanied by giant puppets, acrobats, dance and live music.
