When Designing A City, Maybe We Should Get Kids’ Input. After All, It Will Be Theirs Soon Enough (Video)

You know that song by Whitney that goes, “I believe that children are our future”… Put that on play in your mind as the backing track for this TEDx Talk.

Remember When That Cliffside Shop Was Giving Out Free Jackets? (Video)

Cocona set up a shop 300 feet in the air in Colorado’s Eldorado Canyon. Climbers earned the clothing simply by making the ascent up the canyon’s Bastille Wall — no purchase necessary.
