Growing Up Boulder News for the New Year


GUB at UNICEF and Other National Conferences

Others around the world tuning in to GUB

In the past few months, GUB Program Director, Mara Mintzer, gave keynote presentations at UNICEF’s first-ever Child-Friendly Cities Summit in Cologne, Germany and at the Safe Routes to School National Conference in Tampa, Florida.  She also presented an inspirational talk at Uppsala Health Summit’s “Healthy Urban Childhoods” conference. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and Mintzer returned home with many innovative ideas for the Boulder community.
