Tea-tree oil and aloe vera handwash is at every tap, and waste water is captured in buckets and put through a grey water recycling system which was built on site. The kitchen waste water is also filtered and then distributed in pipes to soakaway areas to prevent the ground from getting boggy. Everyone is encouraged - and is adhering to - not wasting water, but using only as much as needed. Recycling bins are everywhere on the site, and you have to search hard to find a scrap of discarded litter.
The various neighbourhood kitchens have all been great too. Teams of kitchen volunteers must be working round the clock - and all managing to be friendly and helpful (the meals have been pretty much always on time too!). Special care has been taken to make sure the kitchens rotate allergy-free meals each day, so everyone can be sure to find meals that they can eat without fear of allergic reactions. Each kitchen has its own menu style - for example, Scotland stated quite clearly they would be having bacon 'n sausages! Most kitchens have been serving well-balanced vegan/veggie meals, all for donations to cover costs. Folks wash their own dishes etc. after eating, and this system seems to have been working pretty well.
Impromptu evening entertainment has been fun, sitting around a communal camp fire singing songs, while daytime has also offered practical play in terms of skill sharing on a variety of topics, beyond the more scientific or political sessions on the subject of climate change. In the kids area, there's lots of creative play going on (I think the adults are benefitting as much from this as the kids!).
The Indymedia Media Centre has been open everyday with twelve laptops facilitating people creating and uploading their own alternative media. Note that the whole laptop suite needs only around 480 watts (a normal desktop computer apparently uses that much energy alone) which just goes to show how much you can do with less than you might expect! Indymedia volunteers have been helping people to process and publish their text, audio, photos and video reports, and the Centre has been constantly full whilst open. Power is a limitation, but there's been enough to ensure that electric wheel chairs remain charged.
There's a lot more to be said I guess, but these are to me the more obvious things about the camp that others outside might not be aware of - the way people are working together and sharing time, skills and resources as they can, very successfully. The infrastructure and 'services' are well planned and carried out with loads of people just mucking in where needed. Indeed the camp has been run with this in mind, providing many opportunities for people to get involved in participatory decision making at morning neighbourhood meetings to learning new skills. It might not be exactly like living at the Hilton, but the camp set-up is pretty damn good :)
