- to continue to nourish this core team of volunteers so that their endeavors are personally rewarding, impactful, sustainable and fun
- to drive participation in Up to Us events, either locally (Symposiums) or virtual (the Game Changer Intensive)
- to gather together a community, these will be active members, learning, linking and in action together
The vision of what this makes possible is truly inspiring. Imagine this community of citizens, united by their commitment to staying awake, getting more educated about issues and solutions, each person willing to be mobilized into action locally, nationally even globally. Truly a force to change our world, to hold governments and elected representatives to account and to shape decisions that affect their own local area. In the Delaware River valley a great example of this is already visible: the local Pachamama Alliance community sent members to the climate march in New York in September and are now mobilizing to protest plans to develop.
Now, working in tandem with the Pachamama Alliance staff team in San Francisco, the local core team have a vision and a plan, and best of all, a committed team of 13 newly-trained as leaders—they are in action!
