The Eden Project to expand horizons
Cornwall’s environmental visitor attraction, The Eden Project, has unveiled plans for a new exhibition space, in conjunction with Cornwall College.
HOW2 will primarily be an education centre, backing Eden’s environmental message. Visitors will gain an insight into how they can put the green ideas into practise.
According to Eden’s head of media relations, David Rowe, this centre will allow “blue collar expertise to be turned into green collar expertise,” and is aimed less at pulling visitors and more at providing education, sharing learning and showcasing groundbreaking technologies.
There will be lessons and demonstrations, which will be filmed or recorded and made available on the web.
HOW2 will also provide a business club for sharing ideas and problem solving.
Subject to planning and funding, the site should be completed in mid 2015.
