Powershift 2009 in Vancouver
Powershift 2009 in Vancouver

From February 27th to March 2nd, 2009 young people from across the United States converged on Washington D.C. to take a message of bold, comprehensive and immediate federal climate action to Capitol Hill. They leveraged the momentum they had built through the Campus Climate Challenge, Power Shift 2007, and the election campaign Power Vote to pressure politicians to take the action this generation demands.

What WE did:

Across the globe, Greenpeace activists organized activities in solidarity with the activities taking place in Washington.

In Vancouver, the event was held outside the U.S. Consulate. Activists depicted Obama stucked in the middle of a tug of war between BIG OIL and the GREEN ECONOMY.
