Inspiring a New Generation

G&T's volunteers took part in the London Real Estate Forum's (LREF) schools programme this summer, inspiring a new generation about the opportunities to develop a career within the built environment.

Students from Dagenham School joined the LREF schools day for an afternoon filled with learning, inspiration and mentorship. G&T volunteers took part alongside a cohort of industry professionals to guide the students through five speed mentoring sessions.

The objective was to tap into the students' perspectives on the future of London while imparting knowledge about career pathways, innovative projects that support the race to net zero and the exciting industry advancements that will influence our future cities. Importantly, our volunteers also delved into the human and technical skills essential for a successful career in the built environment.
