We discuss some quite general properties of infinite discrete groups G acting on compact spaces. The spaces we mainly have in mind are horoboundaries of metric spaces which admit an isometric action of G. As an application, we show that the mapping class group of a surface of finite type admits a proper action on some $L^p$-space.
