UWS Comm Arts Students and A-Live Entertainment Present – Flash-Dance for Climate Change!
Thanks to major sponsors UWS, GetUp and Greenpeace.
Edited by Mike Clay. Filmed by Craig, SImon, Jarra and UWS Students.
Hundreds of young people take part in a ‘flash mob’ on the steps of the Sydney Opera House, dancing as a creative protest at the Power Shift 2009 youth climate summit. Three demands: Green Jobs for our generation, a Power Shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy, and 50% by 2020 carbon pollution reduction targets for Australia.
The dance was the culmination of a 3 day conference in Sydney with more than 1400 youth from across the country with speakers including the head of the IPCC, key Australian politicians, and more than 50 workshops. The next step is a major youth referendum planned for September. (Search for Power Shift Australia, and YouthDecide).
