So, What's Power Shift?
It's a youth climate summit. This July, 2,000 young people will come
together to shift Australia away from fossil fuels towards renewable
energy. Together we can change the game on climate.
Power Shift is not just an event, itís a global phenomenon. It started
in the United States in 2007 with a 6,000 person summit. Since then itís
gone global - held in Canada, NZ, UK, Sweden, Ukraine, Belgium, Europe,
Africa, India, Japan and South Asia.
AYCC started it here in Aus in 2009, with a 1,500 person summit in
Sydney. Since then weíve held it 6 times in almost every major capital
city - except Melbourne! We think itís time to change that with our
biggest ever summit from the 13-15th July 2013.
2,000 young people.
