Join the Uplift Climate Action Council

We're looking for young people who are involved in their communities to come together with other organizers on the Colorado Plateau. 

The Uplift Climate Action Council (UCAC) is a growing network of young climate justice organizers across the Southwest. UCAC brings together seasoned activists from diverse geographies, campaigns, and identities to build relationships and build the movement together. 

Interested in joining our council? Please fill out our interest form by clicking on the button below. 


  • Build Community and Connection

  • Support Local Organizing Efforts

  • Celebrate and Uplift Our Stories

  • Strategize for the Regional Youth Movement



Council members stay in touch regularly throughout the year and convene in person annually for a leadership retreat. For more information, email

UCAC is a separate initiative from the annual Uplift Climate Conference. UCAC aims to grow the relationships within the Uplift community beyond the weekend of the Uplift Climate Conference.
