KGNU is partnering with FLOWS, a sustainability leadership and climate action group based out of CU Boulder for a new series on grassroots sustainability. We’re sharing the stories of FLOWS leaders and how their culturally diverse and often international backgrounds make them, and the communities they work with, valuable assets to the sustainability movement.
FLOWS Resident Leader Indya Love believes the experiences she had growing up in India with limited resources were the catalysts that set her on a path of lifelong learning about sustainable living.
“Our electricity was limited, one part of the town would be shutdown and the other part would use it. And back in the day I would think, oh gosh we’re so poor we can’t afford [electricity] but now that I think about it it’s also less usage.” – Indya Love
FLOWS is currently accepting applications from Boulder residents with low/moderate incomes interested in becoming technicians for the program. Residents will receive green job skill training and a stipend for their participation. Find out more at colorado.edu/ecenter/FLOWS
This FLOWS radio series is made possible by a grant from Boulder County.
