Young people are rising to shift the power



In just under a month, hundreds of young people from all across Canada will gather in Ottawa for PowerShift: Young and Rising.

It’s been 10 years since the first national PowerShift. Over the last decade, these gatherings built a robust movement of youth fighting to keep fossil fuels in the ground, divest institutions from Big Oil, and build a 100% renewable future. This year’s event will add to this legacy.

Are you between 18-35 and eager to build your toolset as a climate justice organizer? Register now to join Powershift Young & Rising in Ottawa from February 14th - 18th.

The Powershift Young & Rising convergence will feature an exciting curriculum including a non-violent direct action skills track, a social justice art space, political organizing workshops, and keynote addresses from inspiring Indigenous land defenders.

I personally look forward to discussing... how to bring a Green New Deal to Canada, support Indigenous land defenders fighting extractivism, and bring migrant justice into the conversation about climate action. Will you join the conversation with me? Register now or help us spread the word.

While so much has changed since the first PowerShift in Canada, we still have so much work to do in the fight for Indigenous Rights and climate action.

If there’s one thing I know it’s that young people are poised to take on this fight.

In solidarity,
