PowerShift 2007!

This seems totally sweet. Too bad I have to sound board Fall Senior Thesis dance…
Thanks Anne Rosenthal ’10 !

EON is organizing a group of students to attend Powershift 2007, the first national youth conference focused on climate change. The conference will take place at the University of MD, College Park, from Friday, November 2, to Monday, November 5 (Parent’s Weekend).

This conference is HUGE! It is a historical effort to draw attention to climate change, US policy, and youth leadership. Weekend highlights will include workshops, speakers (even Al Gore is among potential speakers!), and opportunities to connect with other students and activists. For more information, check out the event’s website at powershift07.org

EON is taking care of registration fees and transportation costs. We will drive there and back and use some of our funding to offset carbon emissions from transportation.

Please note that if you attend, you should be able to make it to your Friday morning classes, but you will likely not be back in time for Monday classes.

Email acrosenthal@wesleyan.edu ASAP if you are interested or have any
questions

Event: Powershift 2007
Date: Friday November 2 to Monday November 5

    I hope EON had a great time at Powershift. I have been keeping up with blog coverage online. I am working with a coalition to make more individuals online aware of better fuel and energy standards that Congress is currently debating. Check out http://www.energybill2007.org. and get a better picture of CAFE and RES standards. This environmental issue is pressing, so if you like our message, please sign the petition. Thank you!
