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:
- Green jobs for our generation
- A power shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy
- 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.
