In this episode, we catch up with one of our partnerships and reflect on our series of sandpits. We speak to partners from Lewes and Eastbourne Councils and University of Sussex who are undertaking a project looking at alternative financing mechanisms applied to sustainability projects. The sandpits were developed to create a space for teams to brainstorm and share insights across the cohort. The sandpits looked at defining an achievable problem statement for each project, how the teams would look to solve it and deriving expected outputs, roles they would take on in their projects and identifying key stakeholders who would be important for their projects. Finally the teams had an opportunity to present their project plans to others in the group for feedback and discussion. Joining us are Kate Richardson, Strategy & Partnership Lead for Sustainability at Lewes and Eastbourne Councils, and Dr Donal Brown, Research Fellow (SPRU - Science Policy Research Unit) at University of Sussex.
