Just because it’s the grayest time of the year doesn’t mean there aren’t greener tomorrows coming. Get ready to see how Utah will be poised for the renewable future by checking out a meeting of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. Later, take part in a great Navajo cultural tradition of storytelling and learn more about a worthy nonprofit. Then kick off the new month by checking out a challenging photo exhibit on children of undocumented immigrants.

UGREEN Board Meeting
Thursday, Jan. 27

The Utah Generated Renewable Energy Electricity Network Authority board meeting this week will host Rep. Jim Matheson, D-Utah, to talk about the nation’s energy policy in the coming months and where Utah stands in the big picture. Cap and trade? Carbon tax? Matheson offers prognostications on Utah’s energy future in the national context.
Utah Capitol, 350 N. State, Capitol Board Room, 801-580-6519, Jan. 27, 4 p.m. For more info, contact Yashoda Khandkar at

Navajo Winter Stories
Sunday, Jan. 30

Navajo tradition has long taken advantage of the winter months to gather with loved ones and share stories. In that spirit, the Adopt-a-Native-Elder nonprofit is hosting a community celebration with stories, children’s dances and traditional songs and drumming. Shake the cold and enjoy this very ancient and very vibrant tradition. You can also learn more about the work of this local nonprofit that serves native populations in Utah and Arizona.
Adopt-a-Native-Elder Warehouse, 328 W. Gregson Ave., 801-572-6137, Jan. 30, 5 p.m.

DREAMers Photo Exhibit
Jan. 31-Feb. 11

The DREAMers photo exhibit being displayed this week at the west-side Mestizo Cofeehouse asks viewers to consider the lives overlooked by the tumult of the national immigration debate—the children of undocumented immigrants. In light of the recent defeat of the federal DREAM Act, which would have given children of undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship, this display is all the more relevant for tallying the human impact of pending immigration legislation.
