Make the Future Live
Make the Future Live, a festival of ideas and innovation featuring Shell Eco-marathon Europe, will be returning to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park from May 25 – 28, 2017. We look forward to sharing more updates soon. In the meantime, relive the highlights from 2016.
Make the Future Live ran from June 30 – July 3, 2016. It was a four-day festival of ideas and innovation offering curious minds a rare glimpse into the future of our cities, showcasing bright energy ideas and providing a platform for innovation, collaboration and conversation about the global energy future.
For the first time in 30 years, Shell Eco-marathon arrived in London as part of Make the Future Live. More than 200 teams from all over Europe competed on a specially-designed track around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to see how far they could drive on the equivalent of one litre of fuel.
Did all the teams make it through technical inspection? Which teams won their categories? Were any records broken? (The current prototype gasoline record is 3,771km/l – enough to take you from London to Helsinki and back again on just one litre of fuel!) Visit the Shell Eco-marathon website to find out!
