Looking for a fun opportunity to engage the entire family in meaningful community planning activities while "stuck at home"? Growing Up Boulder is now offering several online resources to get engaged in Boulder-based projects, including bilingual (English/Spanish) presentations.
In honor of this week's Earth Day, join youth speakers from Skyline, Niwot, and Silver Creek High School this Wednesday, April 22, noon - 1:30pm (click HERE and access the webinar via Zoom and RSVP via Facebook, Meetup or Eventbrite). Students will contribute to an important discussion about climate change, fossil fuels, local action and their vision for the future.
There will be a live Q&A (submit questions in advance). If you are unable to join this webinar, access event recording on SRL's Facebook page.
On Wednesday, May 13th, from 3:30 - 4:30pm Growing Up Boulder will co-facilitate a bilingual (English/Spanish) Q & A to offer young people the opportunity to ask Boulder council members questions related to how COVID-19 is impacting everyone's lives. Register in advance HERE and stay tuned for more event details and information on how to participate.
This initiative is aligned with national and global trends to offer more opportunities for young people to engage with leaders around the pandemic, including Rhode Island’s Governor Gina Raimondo and Norway's Prime Minister Erna Solberg.
