LIKE CAFES, SHOPS, LIBRARIES
Many places serve to evolve youth leadership, to connect with youth, to connect with the public, to find help, to work together, to learn skills, to make experiences, to implement solutions. For example, you can plant dyeing and edible landscapes in parks, at waterfronts, you can make exhibits in family cafes, from organic bakers you can gain free breads for workshop days and you can learn yummy treats from vegan chefs, acro yoga and juggling coaches.
Then, of course, nice cafes serve as outer school Headquarters for group meetings. Mighty important.
You can EQUIP YOURSELF by mapping and activating allies all over the city and region.
