We need a Power Shift to inspire a movement of young people to take on the challenges of 2017
There are some huge challenges ahead of us in 2017 - Adani's coal mine is closer than ever to construction, renewable energy is under attack by the far-right and Trump on the other side of the world plans to tear up the Paris climate agreement.
But there is hope. Hope in the form of organised young people.
In the past, Power Shifts have brought together thousands of young people from across the country - to get the skills and inspiration they need to take action in their community, and take powerful collective action together. There is no doubt that for many Power Shift is a life changing event.
