A visit to the Eden Project and reading the book Eden by Tim Smit is very inspiring. I really recommend this book to everyone who wants to become campaigner for a better planet. As with all interesting projects that become reality this is not a black and white story.

I like Tim’s approach to getting things done:
"you can only achieve the impossible by asking the young, because they don't know it can't be done"
and having a chapter named:

But even more his approach to the project:
“This [The Eden Project] was never a product, and one sentence can never do it justice. You see, Eden may be a destination, but you can only reach it with your heart”.
If you are close to Cornwall, pay a visit to the Eden project, if not read the book.
