PowerShift, a program run by the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition, is a gathering organized by youth for youth that aims to mobilize passionate youth from affected communities and various sectors of society to explore multiple ways of taking action and work to develop each other’s capacity and abilities.
PowerShift is also about learning from each other, learning together, and using that knowledge to develop common strategies for creating positive change. Power Shift aims to ensure that once the gathering is over our movement continues to grow through networks, common strategies and continued capacity building.
In 2009 and 2012, PowerShift brought together people from across the country and across movements to build momentum for climate and environmental justice in Ottawa. Then, in 2013 we took the next bold step to begin bringing regional PowerShifts to every part of Canada. In October, we held PowerShift BC in Victoria, British Columbia. Then, in the spring of 2014, PowerShift Atlantic was hosted in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
This spring we are bringing PowerShift to Edmonton, Alberta.
