Innovating for Sustainable Future Towns and Cities

An Interactive Challenge

Lifelong wellbeing theme

What’s on offer?

Make Your Place is an inclusive enterprise and entrepreneurship challenge focused on making towns, cities, and communities more healthy, happy and sustainable. This event concludes with an Innovation Marketplace, where participants can share and evaluate their innovations

What’s it about?

The challenge will inspire you to think about where you live, its economy, its importance to the UK, and how you can contribute – through a career, enterprise, study, etc. 
You will have the chance to develop ideas for products, services and initiatives that could support the economy of your place by analysing its key strengths, activities, and markets. 
In doing so, you will develop ideas about what future towns and cities might look like, and what opportunities might be available. 
Each participant will  receive a digital badge which you can add to your CV as a record of your achievement. There will also be a small prize for the group who comes up with the best idea as voted for by the other teams!

Who’s leading the event?

Sian Campbell, Strategic Lead, People and Place, and Senior Enterprise Fellow, Southampton Business School, University of Southampton.
