Transforming Glendale
If you think adults have been screwing things up lately, maybe you should take a cue from kids. At the YouthCity Glendale Jane Jacobs Walk, you can join teens to walk around the community, the Jordan River Parkway and 17th South River Park while they discuss creative solutions to transform their neighborhoods and parks. Dress warmly and comfortably to be ready for any inclement weather, and open your mind to the possibilities. In a related venture, Salt Lake City is also engaged in a Girl Scout merit badge initiative (bit.ly/2zwTmve) to develop voices and skills through observation. Salt Lake Public Library, Glendale Branch, 1375 S. Concord St., Thursday, Nov. 9, 4:30-6 p.m., free, bit.ly/2hArBaB

Sustainability Realized
Everybody talks about sustainability, but what does it actually mean? The concept was outlined in the 1987 United Nations "Brundtland Report" and defines sustainabile development as "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." That might seem like a complex issue because it involves economic, social and environmental buy-ins. But at Frontiers of Science: Sustainability Realized, you'll learn what it is, what it looks like and how it can be attained. Aline Wimot Skaggs Biology Building, University of Utah, Thursday, Nov. 9, 6-8 p.m., free, bit.ly/2zg4QCr

Homeless Solutions
You can never know enough about homelessness. At least in Utah, we are always looking for a way out—for them and for us. While the state and the city have been trying to clean up the Rio Grande area and channel the growing homeless population to appropriate services, it's been with mixed results. In response, the Utah Foundation is hosting Homelessness: Exploring Solutions, a breakfast discussion with Senate President Wayne Niederhauser, House Speaker Greg Hughes, Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox and Jennifer Steele of the Department of Veterans Affairs to explore what's working, what's not and what's next. State Office Building Auditorium, 350 N. State, first floor, 801-355-1400, Wednesday, Nov. 15, 7:30 a.m., $12/breakfast, conta.cc/2islvbR
