The Crystal is one of the world’s greenest buildings and home to an interactive exhibition on our future cities, looking forward to the year 2050 and the innovative technologies that will help us to create sustainable, forward thinking and environmentally conscious places to live.

The Crystal actively encourages visits from young people where they can engage in the following range of activities, including: learn about ‘our cities’ future challenges in their immersive theatre; run their own city for 40 years; visit their green wall; calculate their water footprint; jump on one of their Pavegen squares to power up an e-car; cycle as fast as possible on their bikes to watch television.

You can join them for guided tours, educational workshops, fun family events or a behind-the-scenes look at the Crystal’s cutting edge green technologies.
