Power Shift 2011: Building the Clean Energy Economy

Authors: Green For All This weekend (April 15-18) in Washington, D.C., Power Shift 2011 will bring together youth leaders from across the country and from every walk of life to stand in solidarity on the front lines of the fight for a clean energy future. Green For All will be at Power Shift, building the tremendous energy and excitement that is generated whenever you bring together 10,000 young people focused on a common mission! This year Power Shift will offer a Clean Economy Track to empower individuals with the necessary skills and tools to create sustainable community solutions. The Clean Economy Track will focus on 5 main sectors:
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Sustainable Transportation
  • Urban Agriculture
  • Renewable Energy
  • Social Entrepreneurship
Green For All, our College Ambassadors and Fellows will be hosting a number of workshops and panels in this track, including Going Green Living Bling: Redefining the Image of Wealth in the Hip-Hop Culture. This diverse panel will address the growing movement of sustainability within hip-hop culture, while discussing everyone's basic necessities – food, clothing, shelter, community – and what it means to be truly wealthy. If you are at Power Shift this weekend, be sure to look for our panels and workshops. And don't miss a keynote by Green For All's CEO Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins on Saturday, April 16, at 9 p.m. Eastern.
