Glueing Activists

Origin of the word climate adhesive

The term Glueing Activists is made up of climate, short for climate crisis or climate change, and glue, colloquially for glue. This refers to a group that has appeared since the beginning of 2021 by sticking their palms to streets in Berlin, but also in other places, thus interrupting traffic for a long time. 

The group calls itself “Last Generation” and says that it organizes “peaceful protest” or “civil resistance” against the federal government’s destruction of livelihoods and the enrichment of the atmosphere with harmful gases. In their opinion, existing policies risk ending human life on Earth as it is currently organized. This results in billions of suffering and deaths. They say that we humans living now are the last generation that can change this course.

The term climate glue caught on because the act of sticking it on the street was generally more impressive than the abstract idea that humanity's livelihood could come to an end.


Like other climate groups, notably Fridays for Future, the climate activists have noticed an exaggerated tendency to rely on “science”. They use public appearances to emphasize that physical circumstances cannot be negotiated.

Also striking – the climate stickers assume that behavior can be judged as “right” or “wrong” according to “universal ethical principles”. For example, continuing a way of life that drives other states to destruction is wrong.

Secret but true: Cyanoacrylate is the most commonly used adhesive in the last generation. They claim that you simply apply cyanoacrylate, hold it in place and you're done: thanks to the moisture, the hand-road connection will harden in seconds. But don't let this seemingly harmless application fool you, because there are complex ones for climate protests Protest training.


Super glue

The aim of supergluing is to significantly extend the duration of gluing beyond the “normal”. For super glue, several types of superglue are mixed and then mixed with a so-called silicate filler, normally used for filling joints, for example.

Concrete hand

With the concrete hand, when gluing the hand to the road, superglue and sand are mixed until the hand is covered by a layer of concrete and the climate adhesive becomes one with the road.
