Power Shift NZ Pacific 2012
The PSAYouth and PSA Eco Rep networks sponsored 13 young PSA members to attend Power Shift NZ Pacific in Auckland from7-9 December. They were amongst 700 young leaders attending NZ’s largest ever youth climate summit - organised by Generation Zero
. It was really exciting to be a part of this massive youth drive for serious action on climate change.
There were workshops galore on such diverse topics as climate science, indigenous perspectives on climate change, encouraging youth to stand for local government, creating your dream job, NZ political processes, and learning from social movements.
