Power Shifft Youth Conference

This video is quite hilarious but the topic is serious.

On the weekend of September 8-10, 2006, 48 youth organizations from across Canada came together to form the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition - to stand united for a sane climate future. We are a non-partisan coalition demanding immediate and meaningful action on climate change by governmental and private sector leaders. Founding members of the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition include labour unions, indigenous groups, green energy groups, student unions, environmental groups, faith-based groups and more. Representatives from across Canada are uniting to speak with one voice and take back our future by stopping the climate crisis.

The Canadian Youth Climate Coalition is a united front of youth from across Canada tackling the biggest challenge of our generation, the emerging climate crisis. In the absence of significant action by industry and government, we will make climate destabilization a priority that all Canadians need to address. Acting locally, provincially, federally, and internationally, we combine our forces to organize actions, influence government and implement concrete solutions. Working in schools and communities from coast to coast to coast, we are calling for and building a just and prosperous transition to the new Canada we all need to see.
