Do you have a project that helps users reimagine how they live and move around a city? We invite you to a radically different event in partnership with Leeds City Council to co-design innovation experiments on the ground.
These agile experiments will help you identify a clear business case to drive your solution forward. This workshop is run in collaboration with Leeds City Council, the second largest metropolitan district in the UK. They want to support concepts that improve health, environment and transport.

What will happen on the day?
We’ve been working with the Council to identify their priority areas to co-produce short term innovation projects. The workshop is an opportunity for corporate innovators to meet council teams in a relaxed setting and co-design a sprint. This is a hands-on workshop during which you will develop ideas that you can take back into your organisation. You will be guided by expert facilitators to define what we call a Minimum Valuable Service that will help you co-design pilots that create value for the business and contribute to greener cities.
With the confluence of technology, design and new consumer behaviours the concept of mobility has evolved to cover all aspects of our day-to-day lives: the way we access goods, where we chose to live, and how we work.
Who should attend?
This event is suitable for innovation, digital, design, sustainability, social impact and partnership teams in private sector organisations. We can only offer a small number of places. The event is free to attend, but registration is mandatory.
