David Harland: CEO, Eden Project International, will talk about how the Eden Project “walks the talk” of sustainability.

David Harland Eden Project

David joined Eden Project in 2013. He became the first CEO of Eden Project International, leading on the development of a portfolio of ambitious eco projects in China, Australia, the Middle East, Costa Rica as well as elsewhere in the UK including Eden Project North in Morecambe.

Alongside his commitment to Eden’s educational mission, David’s financial background has provided the basis for the growth of Eden despite challenging times and variable circumstances, and as the leader of a diverse and expert staff, he brings highly qualified expertise to bear on all of Eden’s projects both at home in Cornwall and around the world.

The Eden Project has been hugely influential in the creation of green attractions since it first opened its iconic biomes in a disused Cornish clay pit in 2001. Eden Project International was launched in 2014 to deliver social and ecological benefits to new locations around the world.

David will share with us how the Eden Project tries to live up to it’s reputation as a leader in sustainable visitor attractions.
