Power Shift Sydney

Power Shift Sydney Flash Dance Power Shift Sydney Flashdance

Hundreds of young people took part in a 'flash mob' on the steps of the Sydney Opera House, dancing as a creative protest at the Power Shift 2009 youth climate summit. They had three demands:

  1. Green jobs for our generation
  2. A power shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy
  3. 50% carbon pollution reduction targets for Australia by 2020.

The dance was the culmination of a 3-day conference in Sydney with more than 1,400 youth from across the country with speakers including the head of the IPCC, key Australian politicians, and more than 50 workshops.
