At my last meeting with the ICE Regional Support Team about raising the profile of engineering, I was made aware of the Birmingham City Council Climate Change Festival – happening sometime in June. It sounds like the sort of event that might have a burning desire to host the construction of a temporary structure out of newspaper.
