PowerShift: Training for Change
Wed, 5 Jul 2017, 16:00 – Sun, 9 Jul 2017, 16:00 BST
Power Shift: Training for Change 2017: A 5 day training for students who want to create a power shift, from a politics of division and persecution to a politics of solidarity.
How can we create a powerful politics of solidarity capable of winning change for climate, social and economic justice? This is the task of our generation. Banks, big business and elites are powerful. But together, we are more powerful.
Join us and organisations from across the UK and Ireland at Power Shift 2017 coming together to:
1. build sustaining strategies and spaces to win tangible change;
2. learn and share skills to take the fight for transformational change into every space; and
3. explore how we can create power beyond privilege and build movements of solidarity that take leadership from communities most impacted.
Wed 5 July: Join the Dots and Get Connected
What does it mean to win climate justice, workers’ rights and for a borderless world? Meet students from across the UK and Ireland, get connected and learn from one another.
Thurs 6 July - Winning a Just Transition
Fight in solidarity with communities resisting fossil fuel extraction, and build a movement with collective liberation at its heart.
Fri 7 July - Skill Up Rise Up
Develop strategic skills to mobilise students in support of workers rights globally. Campaign to win by building power and practical solidarity.
Sat 8 July - A Future Without Borders

Sun 9 July - Another World is Possible
