Power Shift 2013 - Melbourne

In July 2013, 1500 young people converged on Melbourne for Power Shift 2013 - the largest climate summit in Australia's history. 

The three days included dozens of incredible speakers, panels and workshops. In addition there was a political Q&A with all three major parties, and huge media stunt in the Melbourne CBD. 

Power Shift was not just an event, but part of a wider global phenomenon. The summit was one of many that are taking place all around the globe. Young people around the world are starting to demand a transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy, to ensure a safe climate future. 

 "This is where the work of the climate movement really gets done" - Bill McKibben, founder
