Net Zero Carbon Challenge

The Net Zero Hackney Challenge was a programme, developed by the project team aiming to educate young people about net zero carbon and provide opportunities to the younger generation to enter the construction industry. This programme contributed to the efforts to improve social mobility in the borough by creating opportunities for further training, placements, work experience and mentoring.

The net zero carbon agenda has become a priority for local communities, the younger generation, organisations and local authorities. The journey to become net zero carbon creates opportunities for people and involves various areas such as air quality, health and wellbeing, waste and biodiversity.​​ Therefore, there is a need to educate the younger generation about the next crisis that humanity will face but also the opportunities that a next zero economy will create.​

The challenge was ‘How to Make a Net Zero Carbon Hackney’ and the contractor worked with the council, the Hackney Light and Power company and 30 young Hackney residents to develop real solutions on how to drive change in the borough. Overall, they delivered 8 hours of training, 20 hours of workshops, and over hours of presentations.
