10bn Festival a great success! What happens next?

10 billion logoThe first ever Festival of 10bn, which took place across the University from 15-18 February 2016, has been a great success.

The festival attracted the wider University community and members of the public to a variety of themed and interdisciplinary debates, interactive discussions, exhibitions and open lectures. Students from all year groups attended, including both undergraduates and postgraduates, and the organisers were excited to meet the second year undergraduate students who have signed up to participate in Achieve More Level 2. 

"This week I took part in a couple of events at the​ ​10bn festival. It was great to feel the buzz in the room about doing something at the same time so different and so relevant. I'm looking forward to seeing progress through bronze, how people develop and build new relationships, explore new ideas, and what they do for the magazine." - Pro-Vice Chancellor Tony Ryan

In a few weeks’ time a full festival report will be available. This will include detailed highlights, photos, summaries of key outcomes from debates, pertinent tweets and more. If you would like an overview in the meantime, please follow the @Sheffield10bn account on Twitter, which captures key moments from a range of staff and students.
