GROWING UP BOULDER: Local Youth Share Their Vision for the Civic Area

December 9, 2012

Over the summer, Growing Up Boulder worked with middle and high school students from the I Have a Dream Foundation (IHAD) to document what they like (green frames) and don't like (red frames) about the public spaces in Boulder and the current civic area in particular. Students shared these ideas at a public meeting at Boulder High School on Wednesday, September 12th.

The presentations were followed by small group workshops. The participation of youth from IHAD, Boulder High youth, and ENVD students in this event gave real voice to the visioning process for the civic area.
