Eden Trust


Mission Statement

The Eden Project's mission is to reconnect humankind with each other and the natural world through the power of transformation – bringing science, art, nature and communities together to explore how we can work towards a better future. Registered charity number 1093070 (The Eden Trust).


Our visitor destination in Cornwall, UK, is nestled in a huge crater. Here, massive Biomes housing the largest rainforest in captivity, stunning plants, exhibitions and stories serve as a backdrop to our striking contemporary gardens, summer concerts and exciting year-round family events.

Program Details

In order to achieve our charitable mission, we have three themed priorities:
  1. EDUCATION – Natural Philosophy
  2. COMMUNITY – Building Social Capital for Environmental Change
  3. ECOLOGY – Food, Plants, Environments and Health
All Eden’s activities interact and complement each other. Here are just a few of our transformational projects which make a real difference to people's lives and to our planet:
Inspiring rainforest conservation
Our Rainforest Canopy Walkway brings to life the importance of rainforests in influencing the world's climate. Adults and children alike have been thrilled to lose themselves in the mists of the Cloud Bridge and, at the same time, take home the message of why we need to preserve rainforests worldwide.
Bringing communities together
Every year we help millions of people feel the magic of connection and community by getting together for a neighbourhood Big Lunch. 4.5 million new friendships were made in 2018 – and this summer we took this further through our Community Walk which shone a light on community spirit around the UK.
Educating future generations
We've welcomed over 50,000 school children through our doors to enjoy learning experiences by taking part in workshops and play sessions in our 'living classroom'. Our skilled team is helping teachers deliver the national curriculum in an inventive way in one of the most educationally rich venues around.
