On the final day of Power Shift...

1,500 people took over the streets of Melbourne to demonstrate to their politicians the level of action they want on climate change.

The action began with Australia's first ever meeting of the Youth Climate Cabinet, a meeting in City Square where young people showed the Federal Cabinet how climate action is really done. The ceremony included speeches and plenty of "hear hears". Concluding in the unfurling of a huge legislation banner reading out the policies young people want this election. 

After the conclusion of the Cabinet meeting, these young people carried the legislation through the city to the offices of Federal politicians. 

Together they made their message loud and clear: We need our politicians to aim higher on climate because our future is their mandate.
