Join us from Thursday, February 14 through Monday, February 18, 2019 for PowerShift: Young and Rising, a four day climate justice convergence being held in Ottawa, on the land of the Algonquin Anishinabe.

The convergence will feature diverse workshops, keynote speakers, skills-building sessions, panel discussions, engaging performances, and opportunities for exploring artistic, strategic, and/or political means to counter climate change and climate injustice. Perhaps most importantly, the convergence will offer opportunities to connect with young people from diverse backgrounds who are committed to reimagining our current context and building a collective climate justice movement, together.

Your registration will grant you access to all events, performances and workshops over the four day convergence.

Youth. Rising. Together.
Powershift Young & Rising seeks to create space for young people from across the land to be able to participate in upholding Indigenous rights and building a collective climate justice movement. We will focus on centering the voices and participation of Indigenous, Black, People of Colour, and other frontline communities working on climate justice, as well as grounding our movement in intersectionality and anti-oppressive principles.

In order to help cover the costs of the convergence, we ask participants for a $70 registration fee.

Frontline Fund
We are committed to ensuring that this convergence facilitates the participation of frontline land and water defenders and communities of colour fighting for a livable future. Our Frontline Fund will subsidize the travel of young people who face geographic, economic, or other hurdles to participation. Please contact us if the registration fee or travel costs present a barrier to your participation in the convergence.
