Rocky Mountain Powershift

Fri, Feb 17 (All day) to Sun, Feb 19 (All day)
Location: 
Missoula MT

 

Power Shifts have been happening around our country since 2007. Regional conferences have been held every other year, but the Rocky Mountain region and our issues have been underrepresented until now. Together students from all over the Rocky Mountain region will converge at the UNIVERSITY OF MONTANA in Missoula, Montana to exchange regional success stories and campaigns, hear from climate movement leaders, and learn from each other how to organize and launch new campaigns.

To meet the unique climate challenges facing our region today, we know we'll need a diversity of tactics and approaches, and we'll bring them together in Montana. Now is the time for the youth of the Rocky Mountain region to stand up and demand a lifestyle change. New organizers will have the chance to learn many new organizing skills and seasoned organizers will build upon their skills and develop new ones by working through special curriculum tracks.

This conference will also include a series of workshops and panel discussions in many different areas, as well as many amazing keynote speakers and some super fun socials. We're working to educate and prepare the next generation of civic leaders, promote sustainability initiatives, and provide opportunities for collaborative efforts throughout the region.    

MSU President Waded Cruzado and UM President Royce Engstrom are keynote speakers.
