But why is this mission so crucial?

They’re all about building connections, creating strong bonds, and uniting for a brighter future together. Let’s make a difference!

Through their work with communities, the team strive to empower individuals, giving them a sense of agency and ownership in their own neighborhoods. They want everyone to feel like an integral part of their community, regardless of where they live. By fostering a sense of belonging and encouraging active participation, Eden Project Communities aim to create a ripple effect that spreads throughout society, ultimately leading to stronger, more resilient communities.

So, join them on this journey as they work tirelessly to bring people together, nurture connections, and build thriving communities. Together, we can make a real difference and create a world where everyone feels a sense of belonging and support. Let’s embark on this mission of unity and create a brighter future for all.

Lisa Partridge, the Community Network Developer NI for Eden Project Communities, will be leading the event. Her passion lies in bringing people together, encouraging active engagement, and creating happier and healthier communities.
