The Environmental Academy was delivered as part of the PLACED Academy programme. The PLACED Academy is a free-to-access, creative programme about the built environment for 14-18-year-olds, empowering young people to shape the places we live, work, and spend time.
In the Environmental Academy, our participants developed projects they believed could create better, more sustainable places. These projects responded to different aspects of the climate crisis, by proposing designs that could address these issues through the design in the built environment.
We asked the public to engage with this work to help develop the groups’ ideas and encourage their designs to be responsive to communities. The feedback they received informed their designs in Phase 2.
Please have a look at the projects and get involved and continue this important conversation on how we can address the climate crisis through design and development of the places we live, work and visit
