Building a movement for our generation
Are you a young Filipino Canadian who is passionate about climate justice?
Would you be excited to make a life altering trip to the Philippines?
The Canadian Youth Climate Coalition, 350 Pilipinas and Canada Philippines Solidarity for Human Rights are supporting two Pinoy Canadians on a journey to Powershift Pilipinas a national climate convergence in Cebu City on March 26-29, 2014. Once there you will join with 200 committed youth activists living in the Philippines to learn, share, strategize, bond, celebrate, empower, and collectively build a unified climate justice movement. Participants will also be immersed in the concrete conditions of disaster-affected communities in the Philippines in the week following the Powershift Conference proper.
350 Pilipinas with its network groups are seeking a qualitative leap in the climate movement’s struggle in the Philippines, particularly issues and concerns of communities directly impacted by climate change. It is also a clear response to the impacts brought by Super Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) as the foremost climate issue the country faces today.
We cannot afford another super typhoon wreaking havoc on our dreams and future! If you believe this generation can make a difference, join us take this movement forward! With our voices raised together, we can reclaim power and climate justice. Sulong!
