As cities around the world go vertical, and land is consumed by construction, we have to rethink how we grow food. Urban farming is on the increase and edible landscapes are popping up in train stations and laneways.
Will you escape the meeting room?
We’ve all been there – the meeting that drags on way too long, all problems and no solutions. In this interactive event, turn a meeting room into an escape room. Hands-on puzzles reflect the agenda and you’ll join a team of strangers to come up with positive solutions. Solve all the puzzles in the right order and escape the meeting! Leave your buzzwords at the door: we’re looking for real action on real workplace problems. Pool your skills and experiences in (metaphorically) locked rooms to solve puzzles on gender balance, leadership, workplace culture and workspace design. Escape the room, and bring the solutions with you into everyday life.
