Here’s your opportunity to capture the imagination of the nation’s brightest doers and dreamers.
Imagine the enormous potential when thousands of changemakers – each one with unique perspectives, experiences, and skills – gather in Pittsburgh this October for Upswell. We’re talking about literally tens of thousands of years of doing good – all in one place!
It’s up to all of us to make the very most of our time together, to squeeze out every drop of energy and impact.
This is your invitation to help make that happen.
From quick talks to creative problem-solving to bold prototyping (and, really, anything else that you think would make a real difference in the world), we’re excited to accept proposals for a wide range of activities on the Upswell schedule.
The process is straightforward:
- Choose one of three themes – acceleration, innovation, or collaboration.
- Select the format that best matches your idea.
- Write a short proposal that describes how your activity will make a difference.
Who can submit a proposal? You. Upswell is for nonprofit and philanthropic leaders, corporate citizens, activists, social entrepreneurs, government officials, and anyone who is committed to advancing the common good.
And one other thing to keep in mind: Upswell isn’t like other events in the social good space. We’re looking for deep content, audacious ideas, creative formats – and not your standard “conference fare.”
