Inside the Greenhouse's Work with Youth on Resilience
Included here (below) are instructions for five artistic activities (projects) for young women to contribute to their city’s plan for resilience. These were developed by Beth Osnes and Rebekah Anderson through a collaboration with Inside the Greenhouse.
In these examples are opportunities for young women to share their perspectives, needs, and contributions to increase their city’s capacity for resilience.
