Powershift 2007

On November 2, 2007, thousands of young adults converged on Washington, D.C. for Power Shift 2007, the first national youth summit to address the climate crisis. Youth of all backgrounds used their experience from local and state level climate change movements to create a fresh, positive, and inspiring vision of the future, one focused on their potential to overcome the challenges of the 21st century, build a clean energy economy, achieve energy independence, create millions of green jobs, increase global equity, and revitalize the American economy. The conference took place over three days, followed by a ‘lobby day’ where almost 3000 young adults went to Congress and lobbied their representatives to support their goals.
