Earlier in September, the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) announced a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style competition for young industry professionals, accelerating the drive to net zero.
The competition has been extended and the closing date is midday on 8th October.
The competition aims to:
- bring forward practical ideas which are almost ready for implementation on sites/in factories, and suitable for wider industry adoption;
- capitalise on the collective political, industry and societal demand to reduce our emissions levels; and to,
- harness the power and voice of young professionals already working in the sector, providing support to accelerate their practical ideas to implementation.
The CLC asks: do you have what it takes to help save the world? Can you bring your creativity to solve the biggest question faced by the construction sector? Are you itching to be at the heart of efforts to deliver net zero carbon?
If you can answer ‘yes’ to all of these questions, and you are a young professional working in construction then you are invited to take part in the Construction Leadership Council’s Dragons’ Den competition for proposals to crack down on carbon.
Short-listed applicants will present their ideas to the Construct Zero Dragon’s Den for debate and discussion, with the winner receiving a range of prizes including a £1,000 cash award (donated by the Builders Merchants Federation). This is an exciting opportunity for young industry professionals to pitch existing ideas to the heart of Government. Further details including how to apply can be found here.
Alongside support to get your idea off the ground the winning proposal will also bag a £1000 cash award donated by the Builders Merchants Federation, and mentoring with a CLC Business Leader.
