JTMP is attending the Power Shift 2011 here in DC, where thousands of young people are coming together to organize and mobilize for climate protection. They will attend workshops and breakout groups on how to bring about climate change legislation, listen to motivational speakers, and network. Please check back for videos and more on this event, as JTMP will be there through Monday.
The first day also saw Al Gore and Van Jones speaking, and we will post those speeches shortly. Also, Power Shift 2011 young leaders were at the White House, which included a surprise visit by President Obama.
