  2018 Blueprints Conference
2018 Blueprints Conference April 30 – May 2, 2018 The Westin Westminster Denver, CO Blueprints (formerly Blueprints for Violence Prevention) began in 1996 and is hosted at the University of Colorado Boulder—Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence (CSPV). With over a decade of funding from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Blueprints maintained a focus on violence and drug use outcomes. Through funding from the Annie E. Casey Foundation it has recently expanded its scope to include mental and physical health, self-regulation and educational achievement outcomes. The goal of the conference is to disseminate science-based information on programs that have the highest standards for promoting education, behavior, emotional well-being, physical health and positive relationships. This conference will provide support, guidance and tools by program and prevention experts to promote effective policymaking and help practitioners implement these programs successfully in their own communities. The purpose of bringing policymakers, developers and practitioners of evidence-based programs together in one location is to provide a first-class conference that offers continuing education and networking opportunities. This conference sets a foundation for future collaboration among those interested in the promotion of evidence-based programs.

May Eve (Walpurgis) - Asatru
The festival of Walpurgis was a night of both revelry and darkness. The nine nights of April 22 to April 30 are celebrated as a rememberance of the Allfather's (Odin) self-sacrifice upon the World Tree, Yggdrasil. It was on the ninth night (April 30, Walpurgisnacht) that he beheld the Runes, grasped them, and ritually died for an instant. At that moment, all the Light in the 9 worlds is extinguished, and utter Chaos reigns. At the final stroke of midnight, the Light returns in dazzling brillance, and the bale-fires are lit. On Walpurgisnacht, the dead have full sway upon the earth; it is the ending night of the Wild Hunt.
