So it's time to inspire, mobilize people and give an extra push so we get a strong movement pushing for big changes that will impact us all. We have been learning a lot in our path, and we realize big changes comes with small actions. And now it's time to share all that knowledge and experience so people engage with the cause.
In November, we will host a one-day festival in where we will ignite the spark to create Happy Cities. What do we need to create a inclusive city, with access for all, safe and where growth and learning are guarantee? Why it is important? How do we build that city? All these questions we will try to answer in the Festival together with urbanists, mobility experts, educators, teachers, entrepreneurs, academics and social leaders. All of them will connect with an estimate audience of 2000 people at a free entrance. Debates, workshops, round tables, exhibitions and a lot of interaction in order to create ideas and concrete individual actions towards the creation of a better reality for all.
Thanks to your support we can keep making these giant steps and escalating our impact!
Some time has gone by since we started with this skateboarding program, and as expected kids have become better every day, not only on their skills on the boards, but on how they face fears and how they keep on getting up every time they fall and keep trying till they get it right.
The group has become a tribe and has gotten attention from the neighborhood, during the times the skate program is running on the local field, many other curious kids stop there and admire these kids, and they even sometimes try a few rides on the boards.
Skateboarding is not only an opportunity for us to work on life skills such as frustration management and overcoming tough situations but it is the way to work that out on an innovative way. It is an individual sport, but it is also an excellent way to generate collaboration, team work and empathy. All of this while having a blast out in the park while sliding over a board feeling the wind in their faces.
Thank you for your support to this program, and please contact us for more information on this or other projects from our organization at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Almost half of the year has gone by and we the kids participating on the Code your future program are closing a stage and getting ready to start a new challenge.
The stage they will be closing during the next couple of weeks is the use of Scratch- a kids friendly coding platform- that was the first step to understanding what coding is about in a fun and playful way. They will code a whole game/ application in teams and then will be their own judges in terms of how well designed and coded it was.
The next challenge they will be facing once they finish the Scratch project is to work with “real” coding languages such as Processing.JS and then code their own websites. As you can imagine this is going to be a huge challenge, that we know they will be able to dominate with the help and guidance of our amazing teachers and volunteers.
