This is happening all over the world
Usually we email you about campaigns and events in Australia. But today, we’re taking a moment to share exciting news about the momentum that is growing globally for the climate movement. Last year 350.org launched an initiative, Global Power Shift, to globally scale up the climate movement. I won’t say much more, as the infographic below tells the story of what has happened in the last year.

Global Power Shift is scaling up the climate movement in an unprecedented way — it is sparking climate action all over the world. Check this awesome timeline to see what the teams are up to.
From national summits to weeks of action, these teams are building innovative, bold climate activism in their regions. They are exposing fossil fuel corporations and pressuring their leaders to take serious action. They are promoting and implementing clean, renewable energy, reaching and engaging frontline communities, and highlighting climate impacts. They’re working with well established partners and articulating effective, coordinated campaigns to tackle climate change.
Here in Australia, phase two of Global Power Shift involved AYCC’s Power Shift event in Melbourne last year, and then the Summer Heat campaign that recently wrapped up. We’re now working on campaigns to stop the Maules Creek coal mine in NSW, the Galilee Basin Coal Mines in QLD and massive gas and coal expansion plans in WA.
Our thanks go out to all the partner organisations we work with, all the local groups, and all the individuals like yourself that are fuelling this movement forward. We still have a long way to go, but the momentum we are building together is powerful, inspiring, and rising fast.
Wishing you a wonderful Easter break,
