October 20, 2015

The Huffington Post has unveiled #PowerShift, a new HuffPost Original docu-series hosted by Game of Thrones actress, Sophie Turner. #PowerShift examines the power of social media and the revolutionary ways in which today’s youth are embracing it to create positive change around the world.

Throughout the 10-part series, Turner, will share remarkable stories from across the globe of how social media helped bring about change – from influencing public opinion and campaigning for social justice, to starting political revolutions and creating celebrity names.

“Even though we’ve seen example after example around the world of social media deepening connections, improving lives and making the world better, we are still only beginning to understand its potential,” said Arianna Huffington. “So I’m delighted that, as part of our “What’s Working” initiative to reimagine journalism with an emphasis on solutions, #PowerShift is putting a spotlight on real people using social media to change the world, in a way that’s both inspiring and entertaining.”
