One of the first workshops we do each season is a neighborhood walking tour. Last week at MOOS Shaker, all 13 team members walked the Moreland neighborhood to identify locations we think work well and locations we think could be improved. We walked along main streets, intersections, parks, vacant lots, and playgrounds. We discussed how design can make places feel better and marked down our observations on a map. Many of us already had ideas for projects we could build to respond to these design opportunities. It was a great day to re-familiarize ourselves with our neighborhood and get to know our new team members a little better. Look out for the physical results of our on-site research soon! #designthinking#urbandesign#planning#neighborhooddevelopment#youthengagement#designdiversity#blackindesign#shakerheights#morelandrising @americanplanningassociation @aianational @aiaohio @aiacleveland @rdlarchitects @shakerheights @shakerdevcorp
I was thrilled to be a part of the Prospect High School delegation in accepting the Caring School Climate Award from the YMCA’s Project Cornerstone Asset Champion program. We’re collectively creating an inclusive environment at Prospect with the intention of embracing diversity, empowering students to take ownership of their individual actions, and emphasizing our role as growing citizens. In the past few years alone, the principle of inclusion is evident in our changes — the use of restorative justice, the prevalence of gender identity awareness, and a focus on building interpersonal connections. Congratulations to my classmates, the other fantastic community recipients, and bravo to all schools that are building campuses where youth can both learn and lead without fear of ostracism. #CaringSchoolClimate#YouthEngagement#ThePowerOfMoments
At Tate Britain this morning for an announcement regarding the @tate’s new free-to-join membership scheme offering £5 tickets to exhibitions. The institution also announced that it is looking to appoint a new trustee dedicated to bringing the point of view of this age group to a board level.
It’s great to see Tate taking steps to involve young people in the institution’s temporary exhibitions, which in my opinion are a more engaging and important way of interacting with art than permanent collections. Attempts to increase access are particularly important at a time when young people increasingly feel financial pressure and exhibitions seem to be getting exponentially more expensive.
Also I liked this window in the Grand Saloon.

This program is for the sole purpose of enhancing the lives of girls belonging to New York’s urban communities, by giving their parents affordable programs to keep them occupied, and also to help them lead better lives outside of teen pregnancy, economic disparity, e.g.
Thank you @stjudesacademy for allowing me the opportunity to impact your students. Let’s continue to encourage our future leaders to discover and unleash their full potential.

Gestern bei der Trifolio-Fotorallye haben die Jugendlichen alles gegeben, um die Aufgaben in 40 Minuten zu erfüllen. Eine Aufgabe war selber ein Bilderrätsel zu erstellen. Erkennt ihr trotz Kaleidoskop-Optik was fotografiert wurde?

The youth, do you see injustice around you & can't do anything about it?
It's not that you can't do anything about it, you chose to stay happy with the injustice, you chose to overlook the reality, you chose to live a glittery life for the sake of social media, you chose to be careless, you chose to have an attitude 'It doesn't affect me', you chose to be selfish, you chose to hear your elders who say 'it's none of your business', since you chose to live in this reality, you are choosing death & destruction of humans & environment for generations!... or you chose to adapt violence by carrying forward the legacy of groups with evil agenda. Either way you have been on the wrong side.
Youth with nonviolence & wisdom gained independence for their states, they peacefully ousted the corrupt leaders around the world... it's all because of their discipline & love for humanity as a whole.
As a youth myself, I see the youth being diluted towards fancy world! Come to reality! Don't let these corrupt oldies decide your future.
