Captain Your Local Community of Champions!

United People Global (UPG) is a global community that encourages and enables people to participate in making the world a better place.  To do this they manage a network of independent and local communities of people who apply UPG’s mission and methods to tackle challenges within their communities. UPG calls these “Communities of Champions”. And there is an opportunity for you to apply to establish a Community of Champions in your city or community. As a Captain, you will work with others locally and be part of a global family.

Each UP Community is a non-partisan, non-religious group within a local community that is focused on empowering people to participate in the future of their communities. UP Communities contribute to resolving local challenges by collaborating with relevant stakeholders in a positive and non-confrontational manner. Each UP Community is composed of people from all walks of life and reflects the diversity of the community that the UP Community serves. The work of all Communities of Champions is facilitated by UPG, an independent not-for-profit organisation based in Geneva, Switzerland.
