Ideas Fit for a Prince


Getting feedback on your creative work is scary at the best of times. So imagine how our students from Oaklands College felt when they discovered it wasn’t going to be a creative director judging their ideas, but the Prince of Wales.

The National Grid shared their brief to get offices recycling more. And our students shared their ideas with Prince Charles at his home in Clarence House. Now their work’s had the royal seal of approval, the National Grid will be developing the ideas some more to make sure their own offices are as sustainable as possible.

Being part of this project was such an honour – for our students, and for all of us here at the Ideas Foundation. We haven’t stopped talking about it since.

“It was a once in a lifetime experience meeting Prince Charles and getting his feedback on my work.”

Tommy Ash, a first-year student
