Participants are being sought in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire to take part in The Eden Project Communities Virtual Community Camp 2021.
This immersive learning experience, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, offers a mixture of practical activities, workshop sessions and networking opportunities for people from across the UK who are interested in becoming community leaders or improving their existing skillset in this area. The Community Camp will be taking place online throughout March, consisting of two sessions per week.
This opportunity is free to volunteers however, due to funding restrictions, applications from paid professionals cannot be accepted.
Virtual Community Camp can be of benefit to many different people, including those who:
- want to start a community project or are already doing something and want to take the next step
- are just starting out on their journey or those who are more experienced but keen to learn from and share with others
- have been involved with Mutual Aid groups or helping those in their community during Covid-19 and are interested in staying active
- find that they have a little more time to get involved in their community now due to a change with their education or employment
As part of the Virtual Community Camp, participants can receive a certificate confirming completion of a Prospect Awards Endorsed Programme in Creative Community Leadership. This is integrated into the programme of sessions and does not require additional time, coursework or assessment.

Applications must be submitted via this online form by Sunday 21 February 2021.
