This event was really valuable for our organisation and also the wider community, I'd love to see more of these types of opportunities for young people.Environment Agency
Returning to Solihull for a fourth year, our 2017 event ran like a smooth, well-oiled machine!
Students took part in a series of locally adapted workshops that included developing a sustainable local energy plan as well as creating a truly sustainable development at the HS2 Arden Cross site.
In our Your Business Future workshop students designed some extraordinarily products, if only they could find a developer, the sustainable trainer made from recycled materials that included integrated mini wheels for electricity generation and a ‘Fit Bit’ type feedback mechanism. Alternatively there was Bamboozle, something new for the world of construction, a bamboo-based product that could be used for pipe work, bringing natural strength, resilience and a carbon neutral status to the market.
