Countdown to


We’re bringing together thousands of young people (virtually) to build critical skills to halt climate catastrophe.

Power Shift connects individual activists to form a network of trained organizers. Since 2007, national and regional Power Shift convergences have motivated and inspired young climate leaders to dedicate themselves to fighting for justice for the long haul. Together, we can shape an equitable and just future, along with the paths we take to get there

We're Converging Virtually .

Based on the latest CDC guidance, vaccine availability, and public health information, we have decided to move our convergence from New Orleans to a virtual setting.

We originally chose New Orleans as our convening location because it is one the cities most heavily affected by climate change in the U.S. Since Hurricane Katrina, NOLA has been a hub for communities building climate resilience — and has lots to teach us about building justice into climate recovery. We are thrilled to have partnered with groups from across the region to invest in young people in the area to deepen their work. We are also excited to center New Orleans art and culture throughout the virtual convergence.
