Child Friendly City Initiative
In April 2023, a group of second graders at Whittier participated in a project about child-friendly cities in collaboration with Growing Up Boulder and YOAB (Boulder’s Youth Opportunity Advisory Board). The Child Friendly Cities Initiative was started by UNICEF in an effort to have local entities (both government and non profit) take into account children and youth in their decision making and programming. YOAB developed this video to highlight CFCI as Boulder is beginning its journey into the initiative. This video is inclusive to various youth age groups to capture a complete picture of what youth in Boulder need and want to see in their city. Youth that participated in this video shared their hopes and thoughts about Boulder.
