Prince's Foundation Christmas Networking Event
Thu 8 December 2016, 19:00 – 22:00 GMT
Join us at our headquarters in Shoreditch for our end of year celebration and networking event.
We'll be looking back at the successes of this year, which saw the opening of our flagship project, Swansea University's Bay Campus, and the launch of a new MA in Sustainable Engineering for International Development with their University. This year also witnessed the launch of Beauty-In-My-Back-Yard (BIMBY), an interactive, open-access tool for communities to influence housing in their area.
Our international team successfully completed the renovation of a symbolic building at the heart of Rose Town, Jamaica, transforming it into an entreprise centre and community garden for Rose Town's residents. We worked with sister charity, Turqouise Mountain, to renovate a heritage residential building in the rapidly modernising capital of Myanmar. Whilst working with the Community Cooker Foundation, we constructed 4 rubbish-consuming, sustainable cooker stoves in Nairobi, Kenya to help residents tackle sanitation and environmental challenges, and offer free access to a sustainable source of energy.
This year also marks the beginning of a significant moment in the Foundation's history - our recent merger with The Prince's Regeneration Trust. The union has placed both charities in a stronger position to help communities across the UK and Internationally to preserve and re-use important heritage buildings.
