We are here in Colorado! We’ve been traveling since 4:30 a.m. from blustery Portland (Helen was doing her homework on the plane at 5:45!) and were psyched to be greeted by sunny skies and yellow aspens. We loved watching our students reunite with their trip leaders and other trip mates- before diving into last minute planning for their presentations for the global solutions forum tomorrow. Seems to be an impressive combination of real and virtual planning and we can’t wait to see what our own students come up with- it will be a surprise to us! They have been working with each other on-line for over a month. The energy in the Shoulder to Shoulder cabin was inspirational as schools and NGO partners introduced themselves in preparation for our two day focus on each of their real life global solutions.
