[TASK ] Planning 2015 - The Event Challenge days

For the primary event in London from the 12th to 14th of June we’ve already made a start on the foundations, but there is a lot more that we’d like to openly develop and share detailing.

Alongside this, we welcome complementary or supporting initiatives - both London based and around the UK that we can highlight, support, link with, as well as share the outcomes.


Why? What? Challenge design workshop agenda development and challenge content and logistics

Headline Challenges

  1. Circular Maker places
