Power Shift 09 logoStarting on Oct. 9, the Energy Action Coalition is kicking off 11 Power Shift youth summits across the country, where young people will gather to demand climate action from President Obama and Congress and get training and inspiration for on-the-ground activism.  In November 2007 and March 2009, there were big Power Shift confabs in the D.C. area, but these upcoming gatherings are spread all around to get people involved on a local and regional level (and, as it happens, cut down on carbon emissions from long-distance travel).  Is there a summit near you?
