|Youth Climate Summit|
|Detail:|| A revolutionary Australian youth event, Power Shift, was organised by the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC) with the support of its major sponsor, the University of Western Sydney. Power Shift is Australia’s first youth climate summit. It was held at the University of Western Sydney's Parramatta campus 11-13 July 2009. |
It brought together over 1000 young people from around the country. Power Shift was aimed at equipping Australia’s younger generation to address the climate crisis, and inspiring all Australians with a message of hope and action.
Incorporating the highest profile global and local speakers, groups and businesses, Power Shift directly involved thousands of young participants - the brightest young minds, the most influential of their peer group, tech savvy, socially conscious - and reached tens of thousands more, through peer-based promotion in schools and universities nation-wide.
