People Can Local Government Challenge
Ten contestants came to Bradford on the 28th and 29th April as part of the Local Government Challenge – the local government equivalent of The Apprentice!
Their challenge was to design an innovative approach to People Can for the month of June.
The two teams were impressed with the energy of the Bradford District had had lots of ideas on how to harness this as part of People Can. This followed a presentation from Bradford Council’s Chief Executive and a visit to BCEP (Bradford Community Environment Project).
Team Pioneer focused on how to create a BD Gym which would involve people getting fit through digging which would also help reduce the risk of flooding.
Team Transform focused on how to encourage young people and made visits to local schools including Southfield Grange.
The Challenge demonstrated the wide scope of People Can to work with people to make a difference.
