Power Shift Conference Swarms Pittsburgh

Over 6,000 youth converged in the David L. Lawrence Convention Center this past weekend to learn about and discuss critical issues, ranging from social and environmental injustices to the climate crisis.  This is the first time the Power Shift conference has been held outside of Washington DC, and Pittsburgh was chosen because of its dedication to building a clean energy economy.  Keynote speakers such as Bill McKibben (350.org) and Kandi Mossett (Indigenous Environmental Network) inspired young people to take action for climate justice.  Breakout sessions and workshops covered a vast spectrum of topics, including discussions led by local Pittsburgh environmental and climate organizations.  To learn more and see images from the conference, visit the Power Shift website.
