Last month, something incredible happened.
In Istanbul, 500 climate activists from 134 countries came together for "Phase 1" of Global Power Shift, a planetary-scale project to spark a new wave of climate action around the world. The young climate leaders gathered in Istanbul, Turkey, for a week of intensive training, strategizing and preparations for "Phase 2" in which national teams will work on scaling up the climate movement through regional convergences, strategic campaigns and grassroots mobilizations.
These events will be launchpads for new, highly-coordinated efforts targeting political and corporate power to achieve bold climate action. Working together, we will truly shift the power and spark the kind of visionary transformation we need to fight the climate crisis. Watch the inspiring footage from Global Power Shift below:

The global coronavirus pandemic has thrown our daily routine into disarray.
