Update: Thank you, Boulder!
#BoulderEarthWeek 2016 came and went with a bang. With almost 40 events, it's clear that this community is ripe with opportunities to engage. We'd like to thank everyone who participated, together we can co-create a more just and sustainable Boulder. Onward!
a few highlights from the week:
CU EarthFest had up to 700 attendees throughout the day on Friday!
The community mural made front page of the Daily Camera with the headline, "Celebrating Mother Nature" (amen!)
The live-stream of the sold-out #TogetherWeWill event at eTown has been watched more than 300 times (Missed it? Watch here.)
Boulder.earth* had more than 2,600 views over the course of the week!
David Adamson gave so many rides in his ELF during the Fossil Free Your Life block party event that we had to recharge it!
The BoCo Youth Climate Challenge awarded $500 to "Clean Venture," an all-girls team from Monarch High School.

#BoulderEarthWeek is an opportunity to come together as a community to co-create the future we want to see in Boulder.
As home to more climate scientists, activists, start-ups and wealth managers per capita than any place on Earth, Boulder is in a unique position to prototype a thriving, sustainable and just community. While the planet is hotter, our opportunity to respond has never been better. This is your invitation to get connected. Join us in declaring April 18th-24th as Earth Week and 2016 as the year when we turned up the level of collaboration to ensure a better future for all.
Connect in with our Community Calendar!
