A NEW course to be broadcast online from the Eden Project rainforest is aimed at helping the public get to grips with the climate and nature crisis.

Guests contributing to the weekly sessions include environmentalists Chris Packham and Sylvia Earle, and Olympian Hannah Mills.

Devised by AimHi Earth, with support from Eden, the live, hour-long lessons are billed as a crash course by Zoom, covering “everything you need to know about climate, nature and how to make a difference”.

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions during interactive panel discussions.

Matthew Shribman, co-Founder of AimHi Earth and writer of the online series, said: “Learning about the climate and nature crisis shouldn’t just be about memorising facts.

“If we’re going to face this crisis together, all of us deserve to know how to be a part of the solution, big and small.

“Technology alone won’t save us. Education for people of all ages is everything: we cannot and we will not solve this without the brainpower of the whole world.”

Course dates are Mondays starting September 20 at 7pm, or Sundays starting September 26 at 9:30am.

Tickets are £25, although this is a not-for-profit project and free tickets are available on request.
