Power Shift - Youth Climate Summit
A call out to all young people, aged 15–30, living in North Queensland who care about a safe climate and a just and sustainable future.
Over July 22–24 in Melbourne, 700 young Australians from across the country will have the opportunity to gather at Power Shift, one of Australia’s largest youth climate justice events, to hear inspiring speakers, to train in communication and campaign organising, and to meet and network with passionate young people from across the country.
Run by the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC) and Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Climate Network, this summit will focus on Stop Adani, the campaign to prevent the disastrous coal project on the Great Barrier Reef, threatening our sick Reef and opening up millions of tonnes worth of coal which will spell game over for our climate. In Australia, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are at the forefront of climate change, which is why at Power Shift we’ll have a big focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander resistance.
AYCC and Seed are committed to making this event accessible to folks from regional areas who ordinarily may not have the opportunity to attend, so they are making 2 free tickets available (ordinarily $150ea) to any young networks of NQCC who think this is the event for them. Send an email to Robin at [email protected] by Thursday July 13, quoting 'NQCC' to claim.
