Youth Climate Summit at University of Maryland

Thousands of youth from all over the U.S. will discuss climate change at the University of Maryland, College Part from Nov 2-5. The theme: "Power Shift 2007," and the agenda includes issue briefings from leading scientists and policy experts, dozens of training sessions, an opportunities fair, and additional networking opportunities, all designed to connect young leaders and use their collective experience to focus action on America’s greener, more prosperous future.

Thousands of Power Shift participants will also attend the Nov. 5 Lobby Day to meet with senators and representatives to promote the “1Sky” Climate Initiative and send a clear signal to Congress that today’s youth won’t accept compromises with their future. Power Shift is also the largest event taking part in the nationwide Step It Up day of action on November 3rd. At the Lobby Day, Power Shift participants will take photos and stories from Step it Up events back in their home districts with them into the offices of their senators and representatives.
