The Eden Project is a unique educational charity, a social enterprise and a world class visitor destination which explores people’s dependence on the natural world in order to rebuild some of the connections of understanding that have vanished from many people’s lives. Our belief is that that understanding, that connection to everything that supports our very lives, is a vital first step if we are to face up to, and wanting to seek solutions to the many challenges facing us in the 21st Century. On site we have the UK’s first ever staff owned solar scheme, Solarfair, a 48kw array. We also have plans for a deep geothermal plant and large scale solar scheme.
At this event you’ll get to hear from Energy Manager Matt Hastings who ran the collective purchasing initiative Cornwall Together along with other partners. He will also talk about future plans for UK Together….before going on a behind the scenes tour of the Energy Centre and one of our biomes. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions about energy management at the Eden Project and future community energy plans.
The footpaths around site are steep so appropriate footwear and a good level of fitness is recommended.
