You are here because you believe in a world where ordinary people have more power.
We do too and you can learn more About Us here.

Join UPG as a Member. Or Join UPG as a Champion.
Everyone who believes in our mission can be a Member of UPG.
A Champion is a Member who makes a commitment to help UPG to achieve its mission.

The difference between Members and Champions is commitment. How much commitment and contribution Champions make depends on their choices and whether they are individuals or organisations. The full range is possible and Champions can vary their commitment over time.

Please see more information below. You can change the language at the top of the page.

Joining UPG is free for individuals and for organisations who believe in our mission. As a Member:

  • Take action, do something that you care about and support others to do the same
  • Participate in increasing the power of people to build a better future, simply by being here
  • Feel at home: be part of community of like-minded people
  • If your organisation believes in making the world a better place then you belong: whether you are a non-profit or a business, as long as you care, you are welcome. And it’s free.

Our promise: Act/Influence, Learn/Grow and Community. Learn more below.

Difference Between Members and Champions? = Commitment: Members love what we are doing and can join for free, because UPG is a home for all people who believe in our mission. Champions love what we are doing and they want to contribute to its success, even in small ways. That contribution may be both financial and non-financial. Champions contribute amounts that start at CHF 50 per year (about USD 50 per year). And Champions also enjoy benefits too.

Please learn more by selecting “Signup as Individual” and “Signup as Organisation”

A Champion is a member of the United People Global community who makes a commitment to be a champion of UPG’s mission to empower people. Specifically, to be a people champion. Champions make everything possible through their commitment and their funding. As a Champion you can continue to be active as much (or as little) as you would like. Above all, Champions understand that UPG’s mission is about serving people.

Our promise: Opportunities with more impact, more funding support, shine, and greater influence within the UPG community. Learn more below.

Criteria: We welcome Members and Champions from all walks of life who make a commitment to UPG’s mission. Members must be at least 13 years old and share their motivation for joining UPG. Champions must be at least 18 years old and are required to submit a convincing application demonstrating their motivation and a sincere support for UPG’s mission. Champions also tell us more about who they are and what they have done. All Champion applications are for the current period that ends in December 2019. Organisations that manufacture tobacco products or weapons cannot be Champions as we do not accept funds from these organisations.

Members and Champions are reviewed and accepted in waves, with priority given to Champions.
