GUB's work is inspiring children in Dunedin, New Zealand!
Video interview of GUB Program Director, Mara Mintzer, by school-age students in Dundein, New Zealand.
After learning about Growing Up Boulder through an internet search, Iain Cook-Bonney, from Dunedin, New Zealand contacted GUB Program Director, Mara Mintzer in regards to his city's project: Dunedin 2040. Cook-Bonney runs a cluster of nine schools that focus on STEAM learning, Project Based Learning and Digital Collaboration. This year, they are undertaking a joint project called 'Dunedin 2040' in which students tackle issues facing the city over the next 20 years. After watching Mintzer's TEDx talk and per Cook-Bonney's request, Mintzer engaged in an hour-long Q and A session with several hundred Dunedin students, ages 5-13, about how they could contribute to their city's future. In addition, Mintzer updated the children on new projects and updates to the Boulder Civic Area since her 2017 TEDx talk. Watch the interview below!

Growing Up Boulder’s Statement on Black Lives Matter
We, at Growing Up Boulder, stand in solidarity with Black and Brown communities and the Black Lives Matter movement around the world. We mourn the violence and harm that has been inflicted upon people of color for 400 years due to white oppression in the United States. Our current events are a reminder of why GUB’s work to hear, listen to, and act upon children of color’s perspectives and recommendations, is essential. We will continue our commitment to 50% or more of the young people with whom we work coming from underrepresented groups. As we offer a platform to elevate their voices, we will hold the adults in their community, including ourselves, accountable.
