What's it all about?

The Eden Project is an educational charity and social enterprise. Our destinations and projects explore the interconnections between all living things and demonstrate the power of what people can do when they come together to protect the planet. We are passionate about outdoor learning and nature-based play as a route to nature connection, and we know that children are happier, healthier (physically, mentally and socially), and more successful as learners, if they have regular access to nature and the outdoors. That’s why we offer training and professional development opportunities to help teachers take pupils outside as part of the everyday curriculum; to inspire schools to consider their culture of learning and play, and to re-imagine the potential of their school grounds.

Our aim

We aim to support teachers to become their learners’ guides to the complex future we all face. Our approach to sustainability is rooted in nature, and we work with schools on meaningfully embedding teaching and learning for sustainability into their context, whether through a focus on their curriculum, campus or community engagement.
