On the 4 and 5 February 2014 over 300 school students from across Gloucestershire attended the event in Stroud.
The event kicked off with inspiring talks from Andrew Raingold, Executive Director, Aldersgate Group, and Tom Jarman Venture Director at Keydynamic
Students went on to attend a Dragons' Den-style workshop, investing in cutting edge innovations, from Jaguar Land Rover and Airbus. Students also engaged their creative side and developed a fashion or food item of today into a product fit for 2025. They worked with enterprising businesses, including Sainsbury’s, Stroudco Food Hub and the University of Gloucestershire Students’ Union
Other businesses, including Hab Housing, Ecotricity and The Institution of Engineering and Technology were amongst those working with students to improve the sustainability of a settlement’s energy use. And in the exhibitor hall students were able to seek advice on the wide range of job opportunities, including from WaterAid, Ecocetera and Printwaste.
