The Eden Project Virtual Community Camp will be held in March 2021, read on to find out more and apply for your place.
Virtual Community Camp is an immersive learning experience, offering a mix of practical activities, workshop sessions and networking opportunities for people from across the UK. Camp is for people with an interest in community and action at various stages. Their Community Camp experiences have normally been held at the Eden Project in Cornwall, but with travel and other restrictions they switched online and held their first ever Virtual Community Camp in October. It was a huge success, but don't just take their word for it - 99% of the 2020 participants rated the programme either excellent or good overall, and 97% would recommend Virtual Community Camp to others. "There was so much content, resource, speakers but delivered in a way that felt comfortable and welcoming. It felt like a safe space to be open and learn." "I think the camp would benefit so many people and not just those who are engaged in the community or looking to engage others - there were useful things for everybody, especially at a time when we need to be coming together and looking forwards after what has been an awful year." "It has been a very rewarding experience, I have learnt a lot, met a lot of inspiring people and now feel more prepared, confident and motivated to make projects happen in my community. Thank you!" ...2020 Virtual Community Camp participants Want to be part of it? You can apply to join their Virtual Community Camp, here.
