PowerShift Atlantic Blog Contest!

Tell us about why you're coming to PowerShift Atlantic, and you could win prizes from Patagonia Halifax!

Hundreds of young are already registered to meet in Halifax for PowerShift Atlantic, for an opportunity to develop skills for activism and organizing, to learn more about the intersections between climate change and social justice, and to meet inspiring young people doing incredible work. PowerShift is not just a conference, but a strategy to galvanize a movement.

It’s less than two weeks until PowerShift Atlantic and we want to hear your voices.

We want to know why you're coming to PowerShift so we can share your thoughts with others and start to create a network of climate justice organizers in the Atlantic region. This is how we start building the movement for a just and sustainable future. 

 

So think about how you feel about the PowerShift movement, and then put those feelings into a blog post.   

 

What’s in it for you? We’ll pick our favourite post and the winner will get a Patagonia water bottle and day pack and the opportunity to have their post published by Rabble on their website. This is a pretty great opportunity!   

 

Write a 600-1500 word post on one of the topics below (or a relevant topic of your choice) and submit them to us by midnight on Wednesday. We’ll be using some of the posts for the PowerShift blog too!
