The RSA and Eden Project: The Key - Despair, Hope, Humanity and Wellbeing.

The Key – Despair, Hope, Humanity and Wellbeing

Monday 1st June, 6.30-8.30pm

The Foundation Building @ The Eden Project


The Key. 

“This most unusual of gardens is not what it seems”


“This is not a garden for passing by; it is a story of our society and our part in it” 

The Key echoes the life journeys that many of the people who grew and planted it are making. It reveals exclusion, choices, fortune, despair, hope, humanity and achievement. Not an easy story or an easy subject - and something a lot of us pass by. This is not a garden for passing by; it is a story of our society and our part in it.


Join Howard Jones, Director of Human Networks at the Eden Project, as he showcases the work of the Key and prompts the audience to join the debate regarding the important issues relating to social inclusion, regeneration and well being. Issues that are at the core of all the work the Eden Project engages in and echo the founding principles of the RSA. 

Following the presentation there will be an open forum to debate and discuss some of the issues that were raised in Howard’s presentation.
