About

The Festival of Discovery is brought to you by Eden Project and Eden Project Communities and made possible by the National Lottery. Here’s a little more about us.

Eden Project Communities

We aim to improve the happiness and wellbeing of people across the UK by bringing communities together and inspiring them to make positive changes where they live. 

We are the team behind The Big Lunch, the biggest Thanksgiving Day for neighbours and communities across the UK in June, and we encourage people to learn, share and connect year round through our UK-wide network, online and offline events and Community Camps.

Eden Project

The Eden Project, an educational charity and social enterprise, creates gardens, exhibitions, art, events, experiences and projects that explore how people can work together and with nature towards a better future. 

We are inspired by the belief that people are more than capable of changing things for the better, and through creating Eden we’ve learnt what ingenuity, resourcefulness, hope and determination can do.  

The National Lottery

The Festival of Discovery is made possible by The National Lottery, the largest funder of community activity in the UK. We’re passionate about funding great ideas that matter to communities and make a difference to people’s lives. At the heart of everything we do is the belief that when people are in the lead, communities thrive.

With thanks to all our friends and contributors – what about other contributors – eg speaker organisations etc do they go here or is there another place for them?
