The event creator says
Let's do a Colorado BWB project for the 128 initiative. How do we want to share the skills, ethos, and love of our community with our local community? How do we engage in civic responsibility? Let's brainstorm and connect our resources and make something awesome. The goal is to leave this session with a project and plan and a timeline.

Who is Burners Without Borders?

Burners Without Borders (BWB) is a grassroots, volunteer-driven, community leadership organization whose goal is to unlock the creativity of local communities to solve problems that bring about meaningful change. Supporting volunteers from around the world in innovative disaster relief solutions & community resiliency projects, BWB is known for the unbridled creativity they bring to every civic project they do.

Following the 2005 Burning Man event, several participants headed south into the Hurricane Katrina disaster area to help people rebuild their devastated communities. As the volunteer numbers grew, they focused their initial efforts on rebuilding a destroyed Vietnamese temple in Biloxi, Mississippi. After several months, that job done, they moved to another needy Mississippi community, Pearlington, to continue to work hard — gifting their time — to help those in need. Over the course of eight months, BWB volunteers gifted over $1 million dollars worth of reconstruction and debris removal to the residents of Mississippi.

What does this look like? The important thing is to create collaborations and bring as much creativity and fun to the project as possible. The BWB website is intended to be the mouthpiece for this community’s efforts as well as a catalyst for inspiring new ideas. Join us!
