Our best Luncheon ever, 2013 marked a new era of work at The Pachamama Alliance through the unveiling of our groundbreaking educational initiative - Up to Us. Creating a just, sustainable, and fulfilling future is up to each and every one of us, and our 2000+ participants received the message with contagious enthusiasm. Re-live the momentum of the Luncheon through our photos, videos, social media highlights, and impact infographic!

The full luncheon video is located at the bottom of this page.
The roots of The Pachamama Alliance extend deep into the Amazon Rainforest of Ecuador where our indigenous partners urged us to "change the dream of the modern world."
Pachamama Alliance founders Lynne Twist, Bill Twist and John Perkins welcome our guests to our 2013 Luncheon and discuss our mission: Empowering indigenous people of the Amazon rainforest to preserve their lands and culture and, using insights from that work, to educate and inspire individuals everywhere to bring forth a thriving just and sustainable world.
Pachamama Alliance co-founder Bill Twist and our indigenous partners discuss our organization's origins - our partnership with indigenous people in the Amazon rainforest to protect their land and culture from oil exploitation - and our successes and accomplishments that resulted from this partnership.
We introduce our new pathway to social action, "Up to Us"! Up to Us is a transformative educational initiative that educates and inspires citizens to take action to create a world that works for everyone. We've been changing the dream, now it's time to change the game. Hear Pachamama Alliance co-founder Bill Twist and Programs Director Ben Schick discuss this groundbreaking pathway of programs.
Pachamama Alliance co-founder Bill Twist makes 3 points: 1. Reforming our Government may seem impossible, but apathy and resignation is a strategy used to keep us from acting for change. 2. We must create a social collective that will act for change. 3. Indigenous people are the unseen game changers in our world.
Lynne Twist invites you to support our work in the Amazon rainforest and our transformative educational program "Up to Us." Step up to support the creation of a just, sustainable, and fulfilling world that works for everyone.
