Workshop overview

What happens: Eden Enterprise Days can be adapted to suit your school, including the theme. In this particular example students are challenged to come up with a plan to create a successful and sustainable future for their place.  

Following an initial team-building activity they are set a series of challenges to come up with activities, products and marketing ideas which will help build a sustainable and appealing future for the local area.

They form themselves into a new company and then pitch their plans to the rest of the group who vote for the winners.  

Location: The workshop takes place in your school.
