Experience bright ideas in action

Make the Future is a festival of ideas and innovations that supports bright energy ideas and provides a platform for innovation, collaboration and conversation about the global energy challenge. It is a four-day event that will take place at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, June 30-July 3, 2016.

The event is open to the general public, is free of charge, and will have experiential activities for all ages. Through virtual reality experiences and hands-on science experiments visitors will explore what is happening now and what the future of energy might look like, from renewable energies to natural gas or low-carbon technologies. Visitors will also be able to interact and play with how we can use and create energy in everyday life.

At the heart of the event will be the Shell Eco-marathon student mileage challenge where more than 200 teams from all over Europe design and build the most fuel efficient vehicles that the best bright young minds can imagine. The teams then compete on a specially-designed track at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to see just how far they can drive on the equivalent of one litre of fuel. The current record stands at 3,771km – that’s from London to Rome and back again on just one litre of gasoline!
