"The Big Positive"

"This Summer will see our nationwide sustainability roadshow, The Big Positive Weekend visit our UK Shopping Centres.

"The Big Positive aims to reach 2 million customers and inspire 200,000 positive pledges. The roadshow celebrates the great things people and brands are doing for our communities and our environment and is designed to leave visitors inspired and motivated to take small actions that add up to a big positive impact.

"It's the first roadshow of its kind to be staged by a retail property owner and will visit nine of our shopping centres across the country throughout June, July and August with the aim of attracting over 200 million consumers a year [that doesn't make sense. But then doubling the size of car-based Brent Cross shopping centre doesn't either]. The Roadshow will start at WestQuay in Southampton and include London’s Brent Cross and Bullring [sic] in Birmingham. With a combined audience of over 6 million people, The Big Positive Weekend promises to give great ideas and advice on how to not only be more sustainable but also save money.

The headline sponsor for the Roadshow is Nationwide Building Society. Nationwide has been working hard to reduce its environmental impact and is keen to help individuals do the same, through its Green Homes Guide, which provides practical tips for sustainable homes. 

E.ON, the energy partner sponsoring the event, will have advisors on hand to help people use no more energy than they need by sharing energy-saving tips, demonstrating smart meters, and discussing free and discounted energy efficient measures which shoppers may be entitled to. Partnering us on this initiative is Renault, our exclusive travel partner and SEA LIFE* Centre & Sancturies who are supporting the 'Paint a Positive Future' School’s Art Competition. (* "We don't like people who go with the tide - we want individual characters that strive for the best, and aren't afraid to swim upstream to get it.")

Shoppers will be able to engage with an array of different sustainability focussed activities and displays at each centre, all manned by our Big Positive Ambassadors. As well as activities from our partners, shoppers can become part of a digital photo gallery of ‘positive people’ created live during the event and look at some of the most ‘positive products’ available from the centres’ retailers.

The Big Positive event will be taking place at: 
  • WestQuay, Southampton on 14 – 15 June
  • Brent Cross, London on 21 – 22 June
  • Centrale, Croydon on 28 – 29 June
  • The Oracle, Reading on 5 – 6 July
  • Highcross, Leicester on 12 – 13 July
  • Bullring [sic], Birmingham on 19 – 20 July
  • Union Square, Aberdeen on 26 – 27 July
  • Silverburn, Glasgow on 2 – 3 August.
