THE EDEN PROJECT
If you believe there should be a place...
... that celebrates life and puts champagne in the veins
... is all about education but doesn't feel like school
... to hold conversations that might just go somewhere
... where research isn't white coats in secret but shared exploration to help us all
... that is a sanctuary for all who think the future too precious to leave to the few - because it belongs to us all.
Then welcome. That's why we built this place and that's where the money goes.
Find out about how Eden was built...
Greenpeace exists because this fragile Earth deserves a voice. It needs solutions. It needs change. It needs action.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY
On the evening of January 13, 1888, thirty-three men traveled on foot, horseback, and in horsedrawn carriages through the streets of Washington to the Cosmos Club, then on Lafayette Square across from the White House.

WWF - WORLD WIDE FUND
Mission: Protecting the world's species and their habitats lies at the heart of WWF's mission to conserve the earth's biodiversity and was the prime reason for the organisation's establishment in 1961. Forests contain as much as 90 per cent of the world's terrestrial biodiversity - from charismatic mammals such as the great apes, tiger and panda to millions of species of plants. We cannot conserve species without conserving their habitat. Without water there would be no life on Earth. Freshwater ecosystems clean and store the water that is essential for human livelihoods and for the survival of wildlife. These ecosystems are a vital component in the hydrological cycle.
