Gallery features student photography, reflections and recommended actions to address the climate crisis.

Explore Climate Change Through Student Photography and Written Reflections

Community members are invited to experience an immersive photography and storytelling exhibit called “Picturing Change: The Impacts of Climate Change Through the Lens of Boulder’s Youth.” The exhibit explores the climate crisis through photos and written reflections created by New Vista High School students.

The students hope to draw attention to the ways climate change affects our everyday lives and to inspire equitable action that builds a better future for all. The exhibit is also a vehicle for students to share their climate policy and program recommendations with local elected officials and city staff.
