“We’re here at Power Shift. We get down to business. We get down to action.”
– JOSH FOX, Director of Gasland

Before a packed house of 8,000 youth climate activists, Gasland Director Josh Fox welcomed the enthusiastic crowd with his banjo and a call to action. Josh’s message was simple – natural gas is not a transition fuel away from coal, and we must stand united for truly clean alternatives.

Josh was at Power Shift, a national gathering of over 10,000 high school and college climate justice organizers. Along with fellow filmmakers, Josh introduced students to Reel Power: Films Fueling the Energy Revolution.

Reel Power films were screened throughout the weekend of Power Shift, culminating in a filmmaker panel. A discussion on the ways film screenings can be used to generate action at the grassroots level energized both the crowd and the directors. The Reel Power team left inspired by commitments from some of our country’s brightest youth leaders and can’t wait to start working with more college campuses to bring screenings and actions that support the movement for a sustainable and just energy future.
