The Global Power Shift summit brings together more than 500 climate activists from 134 countries to work on building a global movement to solve the climate crisis. Global Power Shift is being convened by, an international climate campaign that has organized over 20,000 climate demonstrations worldwide, and a coalition of partners including Avaaz, Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace International, Jubilee South and numerous youth organizations. During the summit seasoned activists that were behind some of the past decade’s most successful environmental and social justice campaigns, will train participants in campaign strategy, online organizing, communications, and public mobilization. Participants will then head home to organize their own national Power Shift summits, mobilisations, and campaigns around the world.
