What is Power Shift?

The first ever largest youth led environmental summit in Ghana- a single mammoth gathering of young people in our generation to learn, device and discuss strategies to fight for environmental justice in Ghana. It is time to set and shift priorities from the bottom to the top, at all levels of society, from policies to implementation. To encourage, equip and empower our movement with tools, techniques and technology to shift power!


×  To discuss, learn and share innovative solutions in clean/renewable energy and green technology;

×  To train a new generation of young people in environmental policy, organizing and campaigning for action on the environment;

×  To give frontline communities affected by pollution a voice to share their experiences and engage policy makers in solution driven interactions.
