School green contest open

Secondary school pupils across the UK are being invited to design a sustainable community as part of a national competition launched this week.

Community interest firm Enterprise Lowestoft and consultancy Arup are leading the contest to inspire pupils from years 9 to 12 to plan for eco-friendly communities.

Students will be asked to consider housing, recreation, local businesses and infrastructure requirements for a diverse community.

Representatives from Arup, the DCLG and the Department for Children, Schools and Families will pick the winners. They will be awarded sports equipment for their school and invited to be sustainability ambassadors and meet ministers to present their ideas.
