City Build 2040 Challenge
A Program Created By Beyond School Bells Nebraska
The City Build is a hands-on experience for K-8 youth to use recycled, recyclable, and crafting materials
to build a model of their own community 20-30 years in the future. Students will work with peers, near
peer student leaders in high school or college, afterschool staff, and local experts when available to
envision what they want their city to look like. They will be introduced to challenges they will face like
climate change, resource depletion, evolving community needs, and many others. The City Build will
challenge students to be creative and innovative while taking ownership of the future of their city.
