The Eden Project will be the venue for next year's sustainability (SRCR '11) conference barbecue

Cornwall's iconic Eden Project will be the setting for the conference barbecue at MEI's 2nd Sustainability through Resource Conservation & Recycling conference (SRCR '11), which will be held in Falmouth in May.

The centre-pieces of the Eden Project are the two giant biomes, each sustaining two diverse ecosystems, the tropical rainforests of Malaysia, West Africa and South America, and the more temperate Mediterranean ecosystem. The whole complex is housed inside a disused China Clay (kaolin) pit in the St. Austell region.

The Eden Project is about one hour's coach drive from Falmouth, and delegates will have time to explore the Tropical and Outdoor Biomes before meeting up in the Mediterranean biome, which will be open for our exclusive use, for a barbecue with complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks.

The scope of SRCR '11 can be found here. If you would like to present a paper, the deadline for call for abstracts is the end of November. We invite corporate sponsorship from interested companies.

SRCR '11 is immediately followed by Risk-Based Approaches to Major Decisions, at the same venue, the Falmouth Beach Hotel. There are discounts for delegates attending both events.
