On the 2nd and 3rd July, Alex came with..out Emma, without his laptop nor his usual equipment BUT with his amazing speaking abilities and his kindness, to train the future French Power shift team (or at least few of them)
The training was very interesting for all of us, and we definitely want to be part of the Power shift Europe movement! This event is actually a good opportunity for us to try to create a youth movement for climate, which does not really exist in France yet. Moreover, our next presidential elections will take place in May 2012 and young people have to take the Power shift opportunity to make their wishes clear. Because climate matters, we need to take action.
It would be a shame if France was not organising its own Power shift. France is one of the leading countries in the European Union, but French youth must have its word too. Because the decisions taken now have an impact on our future, young people’s opinion cannot be ignored.
Our team is going to meet Thursday on skype for the first time. An update will be made after the meeting and
we hope we are sure we will have very good news to let you know about !
