Conceived by the Solent Centre for Architecture + Design, 24 Hours to Save ….. Winchester is a 24 hour long design event to help generate ideas to make Winchester a sustainable city for the future. Hosted by Winchester School of Art, the event will bring together multi-disciplinary teams of architects, engineers, planners, artists and design students who will explore and analyse ideas and data to put together their design for a sustainable city by the year 2020.
The event will start at midday on 19 March when teams will have 24 hours to come up with a plan for the future city. Teams will be invited to attend a series of relevant talks, then, working through the night, sustained with fairtrade coffee and energy foods, they will present their ideas to an audience comprising other teams, local dignitaries and decision makers and public at midday on Saturday 20 March. 
Part competition, part workshop, part action debate and part exhibition, 24 Hours to Save ….. Winchester aims to bring fresh thinking and challenging ideas into the public debate about how we will need to live in the city of the future if we are to attempt to redress the current pressure we place on ‘spaceship earth’.
