I was a volunteer for nearly four years and now am working in a paid role at Pachamama Alliance. I am passionate about their work and am proud to have worked with them for so long.

The organization and all its' programs are the most grounded, committed, courageous, inspiring, bold,
beautiful efforts I have ever worked with.

Activism work is often as the agitated activist which is not often effective at waking people up to where we are in the world and where we need to go. It also creates stress on the activist. And life is stressful enough! Pachamama Alliance brings a sacred foundation to this work. They make no one wrong or evil. And they do this while also creating a sense of urgency.

Their mission of a sustainable, just and fulfilling human presence is now a guiding principle for my life.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I meet people all the time who are shifting their values and taking action from the local to global level. I work with ATD communities around the world and I see what it has shifted in their lives as well as their communities. Changing the dream of the modern world is a big task. It is difficult to measure, but the organizations that are coming together, the changes people are making in their own lives and in their communities are all demonstrations of what this works calls forth.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help it grow its staff. Too few people are doing too much. It is growing rapidly around the world and has done a great job maintaining a simple office and small staff. But expanding to have teams around the world would support efforts on more local levels.

The Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream symposium developed by the Pachamama Alliance is being experienced all over the planet inspiring people to create an ecologically sustainable, socially just, and spiritually fulfilling human presence on the planet. The experience is incredible and such high quality!

Their work with the Achuar in Ecuador (and Peru) to save their piece of the rainforest is incredible...and a real partnership!

Great organization!

During the event I learned more about The Pachamama Alliance and The Awakening the Dreamer Symposium. While I watched the stunningly beautiful and moving videos and listened to the presenters, I was moved by the inclusiveness of this organization for all groups and communities. It brought together the environment, the human spirit and social justice for all peoples. BAM! Right into my heart.... This is what I wanted for the world. It woke me up to begin discovering what I more I could do in the world. That feeling is still glowing in my heart today....with hope, communities....committed in action in creating a sustainable world.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The growth and development of including global diversity in the Symposium.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

eager, committed people who were learning to balance their passion for the earth, her animals, her flora and her people....with the demands of their everyday lives.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

1) Empower more indigenous peoples of the world to be more effective in saving their rainforests and land from 'Big Oil' in the US (2) Educate and empower more communities to discover what sustainable actions are appropriate to take locally.

Ways to make it better...

......Ummm, it continues to be a wonderful, inspiring experience.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Keeping the message of the Symposium consistent and discovering how to reach more diverse audiences.

One thing I'd also say is that...

This organization has given me more hope for our planet.

My attendance at a single Symposium changed my sense of the possibility for the human race to live a sustainable, fulfilling and social just life in the near future. It lifted decades of growing gloom in my heart and inspired me to throw myself into action to make a big difference every day. I've seen firsthand the acutely important work the Pachamama Alliance is doing in the Amazon basin and the world-changing impacts of their efforts to support self-empowerment of indigenous peoples, including helping draft elements of the new Ecuadorian Constitution to establish a priori rights of the natural world. Through the Pachamama Alliance, I've met extraordinary people from around the world who are committing their lives to changing the course of society in the most productive and harmonious ways possible. My personal community of friends and colleagues has been joyously invigorated by my work with the Pachamama Alliance, and it has changed my work, my family and my life in wonderful ways.

As Paul Hawkens recently said, the Pachamama Alliance may well be the most important NGO in the world today for its work in enlisting people by the tens of thousands in changing their lives, their communities, and their social systems to become environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just. More than 40,000 people have already participated in Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream symposia in at least 28 countries, and the numbers of trained facilitators leading these activism-generating events are multiplying at an ever-increasing rate. The core of the work of this initiative of the Pachamama Alliance is bringing a grounded hopefulness and powerful blessed unrest to community members who are inspired to go out and address the environmental and social needs of their communities in whatever ways they feel they can have the greatest impact. The result is, arguably, the fastest-growing movement generating action for environmental sustainability and social justice in the world today.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

communities across the globe where people are energized to tackle environmental sustainability and social justice, with steadfast will and heartfelt compassion.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

enlist organizations like the national associations of cities, counties and state governments to draw on the commitment and intiative of the Pachamama volunteers to lead community forums on the environment and it's relationship to social justice.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the opportunity to apply my skills and expertise exactly as I wish to support, serve and expand this initiative through working with wonderful people from across the globe.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the most ground, committed, and visionary people in my life.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach into communities that are waiting for hope and vision to really tackle the challenges of environmental degradation and social injustice.

Ways to make it better...

even more national environmental and social justice organizations had learned about the work of the Pachamama Alliance.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

expanding fast enough to inspire millions of people in the next three years.

One thing I'd also say is that...

This is the new model of responsive and responsible society in action.

The Pachamama Alliance's mission is to springboard a new dream for the world; a dream that is environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just for all.
