In late October (18th-21st), the Energy Action Coalition is hosting an international youth environmental conference called Power Shift (www.wearepowershift.org). Thousands of passionate college and high school students join together for one weekend to discuss the biggest environmental issues facing our world today, and learn how to work together to solve them. There will be abundant educational, networking, career building, and socializing opportunities throughout the whole conference, making this a must-attend for anyone interested in environment issues. A large number of UMD students will be attending the conference together. If you are interested in attending as well, please contact Ori Gutin, the Director of Sustainability for the Student Government, for more information (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
