Taking the power back is the main emphasis for Power Shift 2011, and that’s what we learned how to do today. Beginning with a breakout session with the southwest region, the team got the chance to meet others in our surrounding area that want environmental change and justice just as much as we do.
After meeting others, we broke into groups and constructed new methods for making change once we get back to the Fort, so get prepared to see some changes on campus next semester. The afternoon was full of team building sessions and learning.
After lunch, each of us split off into different sessions ranging from women’s empowerment, going green and living bling, to weatherizing homes in Washington D.C. I can’t say what everyone did individually, but ask when we get back and we would love to tell you how great our day was!
Thanks for listening,
The EC Powershift Team
