In a generous show of support for Queensland’s homeless youth, The Urban Developer is getting behind three upcoming Property Industry Foundation events in Brisbane –  Pedal for Homeless Youth on 25 July, Trivia Night on 22 August and Backseat Sleepout on 24 October.

Pedal Power

The Urban Developer team will join the whirr of pedals at Queen Street Mall as Digital Media Partner for the Pedal for Homeless Youth stationary cycling event on 25 July.

“The Urban Developer team will be donning its best lycra for a good cause this month, the Pedal for Homeless Youth event in the Brisbane CBD,” says Taryn Paris, Managing Editor. “We will be sweating it out alongside other industry professionals to support this worthy cause and highlight the challenges around youth homelessness in the Sunshine State.”

Trivia Test

As joint Principal Partner and Media Partner of the Foundation’s Trivia Night on 22 August, The Urban Developer is brushing up on their general knowledge and getting ready for some friendly rivalry between teams. “We love the opportunity to socialise with peers, and to have some fun while raising money for the Property Industry Foundation is our definition of a triple bottom line,” says Taryn. “Whether it’s team building or scoping out one of the best urban renewal precincts in Brisbane, Howard Smith Wharves will be the place to be on 22 August.”

Their team feels confident in several trivia categories and is looking forward to a challenge. “We are a competitive team and look forward to testing our mettle against the best and brightest in the industry,” says Taryn. “Our pet topics include cricket, rugby league, 90s music, starchitects, world news and obscure conspiracy theories!”

Urban SleepOut

The Urban Developer will  join industry colleagues sleeping out in their vehicles at Eat Street Northshore, for the Backseat SleepOut on 24 October. “During the Property Industry Foundation’s Hike for Homeless Youth earlier this year The Urban Developer’s founder Adam Di Marco heard the testimony of a young person who had a lived experience of homelessness and felt truly inspired to do more for these vulnerable people,” says Taryn. “More and more people are living out of their cars as the cost of living continues to bite. Roughing it for one night to raise awareness and funds for an organisation working at the coal face to house these people is a small but powerful way to contribute to the conversation.”

Thanks, The Urban Developer!
