Our friends at the Energy Action Coalition, National Wildlife Federation and Southern Energy Network are very excited to announce the Carolinas Power Shift regional conference that will take place this October 16-18 on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
This event will be packed full of inspirational speakers, educational workshops and panel discussions on a wide range of environmental and social justice issues, and opportunities to participate in community service projects. Hundreds of young people, including high school and college students from all over North and South Carolina, are expected to attend - click here to check it out and RSVP if you're interested!
Power Shift is a national, student and youth led environmental movement that has been growing quickly since the first Power Shift conference in 2007. This year’s weekend event will be part of a global push to demand a strong climate and clean energy bill from the U.S. Senate this fall- and an even stronger international treaty from the U.N. Climate Summit in Copenhagen this December.
This conference has been developed to ensure there are topics, forums and speakers to appeal to a wide array of progressive-minded young people. The trainings offered will be top notch and are sure to strengthen your skills and confidence in your respective interests. Guests and attendees are encouraged to arrive and register Friday night for socializing and welcome events.
