Live Zoom Events –

We have been engaging with universities and schools in a number of live zoom tours.  This was the feedback from one of the Universities who had a specialized tour in energy and water management:

“It went really smoothly from our end. It worked having the person in the ‘studio’ and the roaming reporter, with the interviews of chickens and children adding a personal touch.

The only thing that would make it better would be if we could have been there in person 😊, which is also what a couple of students have let me know via email in the last few minutes… they loved it!”  Tom Rogers Coventry University.

If you would like your University students or school group to vist us via live zoom please contact us via the office.  contact@hockertonhousingproject.org.uk.
