Spring 2015 Product Focus – Eden

February 26, 2015 : News

Indoor Team Building

Eden is a truly unique, environmentally-themed team building activity that encourages groups to engage with topical issues, while experiencing a fun, rewarding and informative team building event.

Initially developed with expert guidance and input from environmental and social sustainability experts, Eden has two main objectives:

  1. Provide an engaging, rewarding and fun team building event
  2. Engage participants in social and environmental issues with an aim to encourage behavioural change at an individual and organisational level

With the first objective in mind Eden works really well as an ingeniously fun team building challenge with a ‘round-the-world’ environmental theme that combines an element of cross-team competition with whole group collaboration. This is achieved in a light-hearted half day format led by your event Compere who will motivate the group and keep the tempo of the event going at a good pace. At the end of the event there will be a winning team, and the group are encouraged to draw their own conclusions in relation to key messages and learning outcomes. Don’t just take our word for it though:

“I would like to thank you and your team for a fantastic day. It was very different from what we have done in previous years and it was very well organised. All of the staff were very good. The compere was excellent at keeping the event high energy.” Forestry Commission

On another level, Eden is also for you if you are looking for an innovative team development activity which encourages teams to think about and engage with topical issues, raising awareness and stimulating thinking on environmental and sustainability issues while experiencing the entertaining and informative challenges. In this Facilitator-led event format, the objectives change from a fun light hearted team build to an event which has behaviour change as a core objective. The Facilitator establishes with you your expectations and desired outcomes for the event from a learning perspective, and how the event would support these. The event then becomes the catalyst for change with clear “back to work” actions produced, as the following client testimonial illustrates:

“The activities were focused, energetic and engaging. The atmosphere in the room was energetic. Captured the essence of our three key conference themes of “Working Together”, “Sustainability” and “Gaining Efficiencies” in one day. There was limited input required from ourselves in terms of organising which substantially reduced the amount of time that would normally be put into planning a conference. Main goal was working together and the activities worked extremely well for this, whilst allowing the themes of sustainability and efficiencies to be included.” West of Scotland Housing Association

Whatever your event objective, Eden is ideal for group sizes of 30 – 200, and will engage your people in a fun, interactive team experience that promotes cross-cultural interest and sustainable ways of thinking.
