"Up to Us is a transformative educational pathway to develop yourself as a leader of social action in the world. It is an initiative of The Pachamama Alliance, which has deep roots with indigenous people of the Amazon rainforest calling for a new vision for the “modern” world....

"Up to Us is the educational initiative of The Pachamama Alliance. The mission of The Pachamama Alliance is to empower indigenous people of the Amazon rainforest to preserve their lands and culture and, using insights gained from that work, to educate and inspire individuals everywhere to bring forth a thriving, just and sustainable world." [1]

"Generation Waking Up is the youth partner to The Pachamama Alliance's Awakening The Dreamer Symposium. It is a global campaign to ignite a generation of young people to bring forth a thriving, just, sustainable world. Through their open-source, multimedia WakeUp Experience and other trainings, Generation Waking Up is mobilizing young people locally and globally across issues, geography and all lines of difference, unleashing the collaborative power of the Millennial Generation.

"The Pachamama Alliance is committed to supporting two key Game Changing Movements that are aimed at addressing the root causes of the most pressing issues of our time: our dysfunctional democracy and climate change. We partner with organizations that are central players in building these movements to tackle the most critical issues facing the United States today.

"Currently, we work with Move to Amend as one of the key players in the growing movement to amend the US Constitution to get corporations and money out of politics and establish government truly of, by and for the People.

"And we work with Citizen's Climate Lobby in support of the movement in the U.S. to establish a price on carbon emissions through a fully refundable tax on carbon that will speed the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy." [2]
