Global Power Shift (GPS) began with an international climate leaders summit of mostly young people in Istanbul, Turkey, June 24-30, 2013. The week-long summit was the chance for us to refine skills, create personal bonds and community, share a global vision for change, and strategize how to organize different actions and similar summits back home. Then, in country after country the summit attendees organized national or regional summits. Depending on the size of the host country, the summits brought together anywhere between hundreds or thousands of activists and partners. The national summits were opportunities to build on or launch national climate campaigns and to empower participants from around the country to return home equipped to lead local action groups. Local groups in turn educated the public about the realities and solutions to climate change, implement solutions projects and campaigns, and recruit for mass global action leading into 2014 and 2015. Thus, together, we are creating the global power shift our world needs to effectively confront the climate crisis.

How awesome is this?
