This year, participants in 3-4 of our free youth programs will design and create a public project that will be donated to our project partners to help build community here in Providence. We envision our young designers creating amenities like rain-water collection systems for community gardens, bioswales to help mitigate rainwater flooding, posters and public awareness campaigns, and pop-up parklets designed to broadly share information and resources about sustainability.
We’re looking for some great projects to tackle this year! If you have a project that fits this theme and meets our criteria outlined below, we encourage you to submit a proposal by 5 pm on September 23, 2018. Our panel of educators, staff and students will review proposals to choose several potential Project Partners to partner with for this year.
