Eden Project's Mission

We demonstrate and inspire positive action for the planet.

As a growing movement of global citizens, we reconnect people with nature, we demonstrate and communicate positive change, and we inspire advocates of action. 

Earth provides us with fresh air, clean water, rich biodiversity and a stable climate. We believe that the planetary emergency issues are all symptoms of the same problem: we have broken our relationship with the natural world. That’s why the Eden Project are working with, for and as part of nature to repair this relationship by demonstrating and inspiring positive action for the planet. 

The future remains ours to make.  Healthy planet, healthy people.

Our origins

Twenty years ago, Eden Cornwall was a sterile clay pit; today it is a living landscape full of life. See where we've come from, how we've grown, and where we're going next.
