The problem:

Young people now will be HS2’s future customers; young people living in Birmingham now will be impacted by the train tracks being laid and stations being built. How do we make sure they have their say now?

Our solution:

HS2 worked with Beatfreeks to engage young people (14-25) in their site-wide vision. The starting point was a ‘hack day’ focused on how under 25s use ‘open space’ to understand what role a ‘station fit for the 21st century’ can play in improving the lives of young people.
