About

Envision Piccadilly as a completely eco-friendly street that is not just vibrant and beautiful, but also super kind to our planet. Picture a green oasis right in the heart of the city, buzzing with sustainable vibes and out-of-the-box eco-friendly solutions.

This competition is all about spreading the word on why it's crucial to design urban spaces with Mother Earth in mind. By dreaming up a green wonderland in Piccadilly, we hope to inspire others to think about how we can make our city more sustainable and eco-friendly for the generations to come.

So grab your paintbrushes, pencils, or digital tools, let your imagination run wild and share your vision of a greener Piccadilly with us!
