Here East People
We may run on renewable energy, but it's people who power us. Here East People is our ongoing commitment to community, set up to make a positive impact – here, in the local area and beyond – and championing difference in all forms.
Community with a Difference
We thrive on diversity, fostering innovation by bringing together different ideas, disciplines, outlooks and backgrounds. We nurture future innovators, connecting young people with unique development opportunities in education and businesses based here. And we re-invest in our local community at every level, from providing affordable workspaces to ambitious regeneration projects.
A new initiative, helping to unlock the potential of young people in the local community through the world-class institutions and businesses at Here East. We award students facing barriers to higher education full undergraduate tuition to attend Staffordshire University London or LMA.
Inclusive Enterprise Zone
Partnering with University College London, The Global Disability Innovation Hub and Disability Rights UK – the East London Inclusive Enterprise Zone brings together a community of entrepreneurs, business leaders and design thinkers who are disabled or whose work focuses on disabled people.
Rethink Food Project
We’re proud to provide partner funding for this innovative educational food project at one of the local primary schools. A hands-on learning programme, Rethink Food Futures teaches children how to make sustainable food choices and grow fresh produce through aeroponic cultivation in classrooms.
The East Education Summer School welcomes 12-17 year-olds to a free, interactive and ambitious programme of workshops and courses. Partner to the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) in this initiative, we also co-host the Introduction to Entrepreneurship sessions.
