The world is full of problems, but it’s also full of brilliant people, chipping away at those problems with their ideas and expertise.
Focus on the Positive is your chance to choose how to improve the world. At our events, some of UCL’s inspiring researchers will tell you exactly how they want to tackle the Big Issues in our world. The audience then has a chance to mingle and debate the issues before voting on what they’d like to support right there on the spot. The winning researcher gets £2,000 to spend on the idea that they’ve proposed: . A runner-up will also receive £1,000 to take their project forward.
It’s a great opportunity to debate some big questions, meet people who are passionate about changing the world for the better, and make a difference!
Focus on the positive is organised by the UCL Public Engagement Unit and supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), one of the funding councils that support research in UK universities.
