London 2017

Congratulations to all who participated in London’s first Smart Seeds program.

Led by industry and building on the success of the Smart Seeds program in Australia and New Zealand, a group of bright young professionals came together to generate fresh ideas to tackle complex infrastructure challenges over 10 weeks.

Presenting their innovative concepts to senior professionals at a Showcase Event, the five teams demonstrated the potential power of collaboration across organisations, sectors, disciplines and generations.

Well done to the ‘Reskill Reward Reinvent’ team and ‘Clean Air for London’ team for winning the Judges’ Award and People’s Choice Award respectively.
