Here is a little taste of what we have been up to during the past month…

Marshal Papworth on
Countryfile

We love arranging
great coverage for our clients.  At the
beginning of July, we worked with BBC Countryfile to showcase the great work of
the Marshal Papworth Fund in building knowledge and skills in sustainable
agriculture in developing countries. If you missed the students, look for them
on iPlayer (episode available until the beginning of August) or become a Friend
here.

Cambridge Science
Centre – Cosmic exhibition

This month we have been getting creative with
Cambridge Science Centre to help promote its brand new exhibition, Cosmic,
launching on 23rd July.  To
celebrate the launch of the new exhibition, we have invited press and VIPs to
witness the world’s first attempt to rocket power a punt down the River Cam fuelled
with nothing more than Fitzbillies’ buns – the most potent rocket fuel known to
Cambridge! We have been busy out and about filming each of the rocket tests,
the making of the famous Fitzbillies’ Chelsea Bun, and the reaction of the
general public in Cambridge to this world first! 

Calling all
Professors and Industry – Cambridge University Press needs you!

We have been
working with Cambridge University Press to develop Education Digital – a series
of thought leadership articles aimed at an international audience of teachers,
students and their families. With a focus on key subject areas including STEM
subjects, Psychology, Modern Foreign Languages and History, each article will
aim to strengthen the link between education and potential career paths, while
helping to inspire a love of learning.

you would like to contribute or if you want to know a little more, please contact

Marshal Papworth Fund – Farming Today

 

Conscious Communications invited BBC Radio 4 presenter Anna Hill to Shuttleworth College to meet the new Marshal Papworth Fund 10-week Short Course students. The Fund provides agricultural and horticultural scholarships to students from developing countries. The newest students were keen to speak to Anna about how the knowledge and skills learnt in their studies will transfer to their work in eradicating food insecurity in their home countries. The interview aired on 13th May.

‘Skills for Life’ ad campaign

The Conscious Communications team has been getting creative in developing the new ‘Skills for Life’ ad campaign for St Mary’s School, Cambridge. The ads demonstrate how the school provides students with not just the knowledge needed to achieve their dreams but also life skills that enable them to reach their full potential.

AlphaBio Control

AlphaBio Control, a leader in the development of sustainable crop protection products, has obtained funding from the Government’s Innovate UK Agritech Catalyst initiative to advance the development of a unique plant-based crop protection technology. Conscious Communications organised an interview between Iain Fleming, company Founder and Managing Director and Cambridge News’ business correspondent Matthew Gooding, who wanted to find out more about the initiative.  http://goo.gl/QpsU0u
