Virtual Workshop: Eden Enterprise Challenge

In this Virtual Workshop we challenge your pupils to create a product or service that meets our sustainability criteria.

We can offer an introduction to kickstart your in-school challenge, or run a multi-session virtual programme exploring sustainable enterprise with pupils presenting their brilliant solutions back to us. 

Information on our virtual school trips

Our virtual school trips are delivered online by a member of our Education Team just for your class. We’ll lead the session, delivering live activities, challenges and conversations with your class; supported by pre-recorded videos. We will provide all the resources and materials you need to support your learners in class. 

Workshop overview

What happens: Eden Enterprise Challenges 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 compelling idea for an environmentally-friendly and socially-responsible product for the Eden Shop.

Following an introduction to the Eden Project and an exploration of sustainability concepts applied to the work place, students are set a series of challenges to come up with a product idea, and simple business and/or marketing plans which fit with Eden’s ethos.

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

Location: Online session(s) or in schools local to Eden
