Cross-Generational Collaboration for Change

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Youth of the Earth Festival was a collaborative effort between children, youth and adults, and was a stunning success in its debut in Longmont, CO on Earth Day 2015. Using two youth/adult projects from the Festival as a jumping-off place, we invite people of all ages to explore with how we can foster change using our best qualities across age differences. What are the gifts that different generations bring to the table? How can we work well with older or younger change agents? What are the areas of possible conflict or misunderstanding? How can these partnerships be applied at home, at school, in neighborhoods or in other venues? Bring your ideas and experiences to share so we can learn from each other how to create social and environmental change more effectively. Presented by Rose Gordon, Lise Hildebrandt, Erin Neitzel, Caleb, Ryan, and Liana Street of Sustainable Revolution Longmont.
