Boulder's Energy Future
In the spring and summer of 2011, GUB worked to engage young people in the Boulder energy future process, a process that would begin to determine how Boulder will meet its energy demands for the foreseeable future. GUB staff helped the city strategize on methods to engage young people by attending strategy meetings and later presenting to high schools and environmental clubs around the city about the energy future discussion. At the GUB annual event, a team of GUB interns partnered with the non-profit New Era Colorado to educate youth about energy issues. In this way, GUB was able to provide unbiased support to the City in creating an informed younger generation about Boulder’s energy future.
