Notes about Imagination Celebration 2021
This year, our summer theme will be “All in on Climate”. We will use arts and crafts to help conceptualize the problem, identify the solutions, and grasp our role of personal responsibilities.  It’s an everything issue, and to solve it, we need a whole world approach- good policies, good citizens and educational experiences with attention made to developing insights into the issues related to: Water, Air, Forests, Weather, Wildlife (large and small- all organisms that grow and live wild), Food, and Human Life. We need to face our climate issues with programs of truth, courage, and solutions.
