    Goals / remit

On the basis of the ethical concepts of 'climate justice' and 'resource justice' PowerShift tries to contribute to a more sustainable, socially and ecologically fair economic system (including a more sustainable energy system) in Germany, Europe and internationally.
PowerShift works on awareness-raising, research, educational work, campaigning and lobby activities around issues such as 'trade and environment', 'climate change and trade', 'investment policy for sustainable development', 'renewable energy', 'raw materials/natural resources', and 'sustainable energy for all'. In networks and campaigns we work together with like-minded NGOs, trade unions and academics from Berlin (our current centre of activity), Germany, Europe and other countries.
