We are excited to announce an expansion to our Brief Cases scheme, the 'Stephen George + You' programme.

In a partnership between The Heaven Company and Stephen George + Partners LLP, we are piloting our new Architecture and Sustainability course, embarking on what could be a revolutionary ten week education-programme.

Involving groups of Key Stage 3 & 4 (Year 7 to 10) students at three forward-thinking secondary schools in the South, Midlands and North of England, the students will be enhancing their understanding of the built environment today, what it means to them and what the future holds.

Moreover – and this is the really important part – what they think they can do to influence change for the better.
