Don’t miss this opportunity to join David Harland, the UK-based CEO of Eden Project International, at a special MTALKS event exploring the organisation’s world-famous practices reimagining “end of life” mine sites.

Twenty years ago, Eden Projects in the UK created a demonstration of what humans could do with supposedly hopeless mine sites. Fast forward to today, Eden Project Anglesea represents an example of creative opportunities producing more jobs, more visitors and greater prosperity. The organisation seeks to turn challenges into important opportunities for the future, to ultimately demonstrate that the future still remains ours to make. Following approaches from all over the world, David has been leading Eden’s expansion within the UK with the first new site expected to be in Morecambe, Lancashire.

Join us for what is certain to be a fascinating presentation and discussion.

In collaboration with

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
