With a mid-week National Holiday, it can be difficult to plan your own calendar. Luckily, we’ve grabbed 3 events for you not to miss this week — including one that honors our veterans:
This November, City Awake will unite and empower the Boston community with the second annual City Awake Festival for Social Impact. In bringing together individuals, organizations, and institutions that are invested in the growth of our city and its social impact work, this ten-day, citywide festival provides the platform to increase awareness and maximize impact of the efforts and initiatives of the for-impact community. Similar to the inaugural year, the pulse of the 2015 festival will depend upon our hundreds of existing and new partner organizations, while also featuring new elements that highlight the outcomes – and drivers – of City Awake’s 2015 programmatic initiatives.
The annual Massachusetts STEM Summit promotes Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education and workforce development from early childhood through adulthood. Now in its second decade, the Summit convenes the state’s educators, business leaders, policymakers, parents, students, and others to share strategies, initiatives, collaborations, and ideas.
3) Boston’s Veterans Day Parade and Veterans For Peace Parade
Wednesday, November 11, 1pm
Boston Common and Boston City Hall | Boston
The Veterans Day Parade honors Boston veterans, BPD and BFD (many of whom are veterans themselves). The parade begins at the Boston Common and ends at City Hall Plaza.
A few minutes after the Veterans Day Parade, The Veterans For Peace Parade begins, following the same route. The Veterans For Peace Parade seeks to increase awareness on societal impact of wars and the role society plays. This parade focuses on the idea of ending war and bringing soldiers home.
