The BPF Futures Challenge
The BPF Futures Challenge is a ground-breaking initiative that will put real estate’s future leaders at the heart of solving one of the biggest challenges facing our towns and cities: how to breathe new life into our high streets and town centres. The initiative will be run as a one-day ‘Challenge’ on 25 September, during which teams of challengers – drawn from the public and private sectors – will focus on a real-life high street and will spend the day finding solutions to the challenges it is experiencing.
This is a unique opportunity to bring fresh thinking to a real-world problem, using collaborative working between public and private sector partners, and to see that thinking turned into action. The winners of the challenge will see their idea piloted through the government’s One Public Estate programme, with a £100,000 package of support to help turn their vision into reality.
The event is underpinned by Crystal Interactive's unique Collaborate solution which enables teams to log their ideas as they develop, to request help and support from experts and to share their solutions with judges.
This process was developed by us, using our experience of designing collaborative events and workshops for private, public and voluntary sector bodies. The process is designed to unearth the most viable solution to the urban centre regeneration challenge by providing teams with a friendly but competitive environment, access to experts and local knowledge to inform their solution and access to collaboration technology which enables the judges and experts to ensure teams are working towards high-quality solutions.
