Whether you’re aiming for a university place, or hunting down an apprenticeship opportunity – this event is for everyone who wants to explore their options.

You might have a creative streak, or you may be a more analytical mind. Maybe you’re a born ‘tech-head’ or maybe you’re curious about the environment around us.

If you’re from an organisation in the built environment, this is the place to meet the next generation of architects, developers, surveyors, PR specialists and more – attendees will be at various stages in their education and interested in the opportunities your organisation can offer them!

We have a brilliant line-up of speakers, panel discussions, networking opportunities, and peer to peer meet ups.

This event is brought to you by our Firm Foundations campaign. 

London’s Built Environment (BE) is of strategic importance to the capital, yet young people from lower socioeconomic backgrounds are struggling to get into the industry. Young people from under-represented communities are either unaware of the full range of opportunities within the Built Environment industry, or not being afforded the chance to engage with them – so we’re trying to change that.

Launched in 2021, our Firm Foundations campaign offers a unique opportunity to help transform the life chances of thousands of young Londoners whilst creating a stronger and more inclusive BE industry. The campaign is supported by an active social media campaign and be delivered in collaboration with our industry partners (including representatives from BE companies and trade bodies), the Greater London Authority and young Londoners.
