Can You Feel the Upswell?

Imagine what would happen if we harnessed the energy, insights, and experience of the people who are driven to do good. If we could do instead of talk and collaborate instead of compete, imagine the kind of change we could make. That’s what Upswell is about.

Upswell is what happens when good ideas are powered by goodwill. It’s a chance to make meaning, make community and make a difference. It’s an immersive experience that creates new opportunities for deep and meaningful engagement with changemakers of every kind.

Our world needs Upswell. And Upswell needs you.

Upswell Labs

In November, 1,500 changemakers will bring a huge surge of energy to LA. That energy is an immeasurably powerful resource for good. So, how can we make the most of it? By testing (and refining) new ways of working together!

Using the principles of human-centered design, Upswell Labs are an opportunity to gather, roll up our sleeves, and try out new ideas and approaches that will shape Upswell. We’ll also explore new mission-advancing tools that you’ll be able to put to use immediately.

We hope you’ll join us!

The City of Angels

Los Angeles projects the power of diversity. Diverse people and cultures. Diverse opportunities and challenges. Diverse neighborhoods and landscapes. Diverse kinds of thinking, hoping, feeling, being. Upswell is designed so that you’ll experience it all – not from a screen or a microphone, but on the ground, in the community, directly absorbing LA’s vibrant energy.

And when we’re not out exploring and learning together, the new InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown will serve as a mind-opening home base.
