Our Pasadena- Student Summit | October 19, 2019
The Our Pasadena Student Summit was a success! 31 high school students from all over the City attended the event to provide input on the City’s eight specific plan updates. The focus was to educate students about city planning, generate excitement around the Our Pasadena program, and encourage participants to share their unique perspective on what they think will make Pasadena a better place now and in the future. The Student Summit was an open house format and used a variety of tools and stations to solicit input on the City’s eight specific plans. The event started with a presentation that introduced students to planning concepts, the day’s activities, and the importance of the youth’s perspective in shaping the City’s future. Students were provided with a passbook and tasked with collecting a stamp–signifying their participation–from visiting all stations. There were eight stations total. Students who participated in all eight activities were entered in a raffle to win a series of prizes ranging from Metro tap cards to new Apple AirPods.
