Eden Project

University Centre Weston Students Visit Eden Project


Students from University Centre Weston’s Biological Laboratory Sciences, Animal Management and Business Management and Sustainability programmes recently visited the world-renowned Eden Project in Cornwall. 

The visit, which was organised by UCW, featured a talk which gave students the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of the sustainability initiatives that Eden Project is undertaking. 

During their visit, the students learnt about the importance of sustainable management, positive impacts of sustainable development, and challenges of managing sustainably. The Eden Project is renowned for its commitment to sustainable management and is a leader in its practice.  

Following the talk, students seized the opportunity to take part in various interactive activities which sparked interesting discussions on the topics within sustainability. 

The visit was an amazing learning opportunity for students. Through the interactive talks and activities, students were able to gain real insight into the incredible work that Eden Project is doing. Students not only absorbed the curator’s knowledge, but also had the chance to ask questions and engage with the Eden Project staff in a friendly environment. 

The field trip is just one example of the practical and immersive teaching that University Centre Weston offers to its students. The experience has undoubtedly provided students with knowledge and understanding that will open the doors to more opportunities in their respective fields.
