Throughout October we ran LEGO® Rebuilder workshops, which kicked off at The Southbank Centre on the 21st & 22ndOctober before visiting, LEGOLAND, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham and LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester.
At the workshops, children were given the opportunity to express their views on how their city could be rebuilt to be a more fun and playful place using LEGO bricks, including imagining how their city could be more green, wild and welcoming for wildlife amongst other creative challenges.
There were no right or wrong answers – just the opportunity to see what rebuilding a world with endless possibilities looks like. With no cap on creativity, who knows what the capital will look like, and what ideas could be brought to life in the future… and there really were some great ones whether it be adding a windmill to Tower Bridge to create energy or just simply growing gardens out of buses,the possibilities and solutions really were endless.
The UK Rebuilder Workshops followed similar events in the US and China, and are part of Rebuild the World, the LEGO Group’s recently launched campaign that celebrates kids’ creative resilience and the power to build, unbuild and rebuild the limitless worlds of their imagination.
