School Workshop: The Business of Eden

A one-hour workshop which looks at Eden as a working example of an ethical social enterprise and charity.


Workshop overview

What happens: The Eden Project is a unique organisation; social enterprise, educational charity, tourism destination, exemplar of regeneration. This session sets Eden in the Cornish context and explores the project’s focus on sustainability, introducing the concept of the Triple Bottom Line and our function as a social enterprise. The session provides practical examples and real world contexts to ground your students’ learning. Within this overview we can explore an aspect of Eden’s work in more detail looking at one of:

  • customer service
  • how we work with our suppliers
  • developing and retaining a successful workforce
  • social and ethical aspects of business
  • business communication - Eden case studies
  • understanding retail at Eden

This classroom-based session links strongly with Business and Travel & Tourism A level syllabuses. We encourage the students to ask questions and build a running dialogue with us throughout the interactive session.
