  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 1 is a national holiday in Argentina, Armenia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, Iceland, India, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, Korea, Latvia, Lithuania, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mauritius, México, Norway, Pakistan, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, the Philippines (spelled as "Labor Day"), Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Syria, Thailand, Ukraine and Vietnam. In Slovenia and Ukraine, May 2 is also a national holiday. In Poland, while May 1 is a national holiday, it was renamed from Labour Day to simply "State Holiday" in 1990.
