I enjoyed listening to the students coming up with some wacky ideas, it made me realise how much they are currently under-estimated.Ecotricity
Held at the inspirational Department of Architecture and the Built Environment at UWE, our West of England Your Green Future, at 6 years old, is our longest running event.
This year saw Jaguar Land Rover and Mott MacDonald go head to head to win the student Dragon’s £1 million, pitching concepts for high performance EV’s and a bridge to better connect Bristol harbour and encourage more cycling and walking.
Students were obviously inspired by Mott MacDonald’s bridge ideas as they reappeared in the Your Future City workshop as plans to develop a living bridge, utilising essential city infrastructure as useful growing space for food crops. This was to help overcome the big question of how cities will feed themselves in the future.
