We are delighted to announce the launched our nationwide school competition for a second year in a row.
One of the
UK’s largest sectors is facing skills shortages, an aging workforce and lacks
the representation seen within our society. Open up a vast range of career
opportunities to your pupils, that are involved in shaping our society and
creating the world we live in, by introducing them to the Built Environment
through our school competition.
The My Environment My Future (MEMF) Schools Competition invites all young
people across the UK to think innovatively and practically about how they can
improve their local urban area, by designing and creating a proposal for the
renovation of a local building or space. This opportunity enables students to
make direct connections between the skills and knowledge they have acquired
within the classroom from the geography curriculum and directly apply it to a
real-life scenario to gain valuable and transferable skills that will prepare
them for their future careers.
This competition requires students to plan, design and present an innovative
and sustainable redevelopment or renovation of a local building or space within
their urban area. They can create a short video or presentation pack to
showcase their solution. The competition is free to enter, and entries will be
divided in to three age categories: 11-14, 15-16 and 17- 18 and students can
enter as individuals or as part of a group. The full competition brief, along
with details on deadlines, submission details, what the judges are looking for
and prizes will be released at the start of the new year.
