What does an organizer do?

Uplift Organizers plan our annual Uplift Climate Conference, a pivotal gathering for young people in the Colorado Plateau to connect around local and regional climate justice issues and build a movement together.

Organizers take ownership of the conference program, speakers, location, recruitment, and all conference activities. Being an organizer means working together as a team with other youth from around the Colorado Plateau to produce a gathering that is relevant and meaningful for our times. 

Uplift is committed to empowering underserved communities and specifically holding space for young people from these communities to take a leadership role in our movement.

We grew up in the San Juans, or on the reservations; in Los Angeles, Albuquerque, or Salt Lake City. Learn more about the passionate team of young conservationists behind Uplift 2017.
